KAMLOOPS - A national walk to raise awareness for missing women and children made its way to the Tournament Capital yesterday.

The volunteer based non-profit organization, Tears4Justice, began its walk in Nova Scotia earlier this summer to bring to light hundreds of missing and murdered women and children across the country.

The walk started on June 21 in Membertou, Sydney, Nova Scotia and will end on the western side of the country late September.

The organization hopes to ultimately devise a national action plan to eliminate violence towards women and children.

Volunteers rallied yesterday as the walk came from Barriere to Kamloops on to Cache Creek. The walk is expected to conclude on Sept. 20 in Prince Rupert.
