Officially Recognize April 24, 2018 as Walk for Values Day
Resolution Number 2018.5.9- April 9, 2018
This is a walkathon which was started in the town of Malvern, ON., in 2003 by the Parent Council of the Sathya Sai School of Canada, a private elementary school, registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education. The school’s thrust is Education in Human Values, where the staff, parents, students and volunteers all focus on integrating human values into the regular curriculum. In 2004, this Walk became a national event being conducted annually in the cities of Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, and Coquitlam where representatives from Vancouver, Surrey, and Abbotsford join together with the City’s Teddy Bear Parade. In 2007, it continued at Dundas Square, in downtown Toronto and in 2007, it also became international when it was done in Australia in 5 major cities on a national scale. Today it has spread over 4 continents in 30 major cities across the world.The uniqueness of the event is that it is not a fundraiser. Rather, each participant resolves to make the community richer by pledging to practice a value of his or her choice. In this way, it is a “walk of love” aimed at making our city, one citizen at a time, richer in our commitment to human values as a first step towards raising our social conscience.
