Walk for Ukraine - Walk for Peace

Ukrainian Canadian Congress is inviting everyone to join the Walk for Ukraine - Walk for Peace Walkathon. Below are the details of a letter we received yesterday from Markian Shwec of the UCC. Please consider participating:

Ukraine once again needs our help.

Ukraine is under siege by foreign and domestic provocateurs who are being paid to destabilize Ukraine and to disrupt the upcoming Presidential elections.  What you don’t see on TV is that hundreds of Ukrainian patriotic journalists, youth, and other activists in eastern Ukraine are being targeted on the streets, at their homes, and in their workplaces for standing up for Ukraine.  If they attend a demonstration to support a united Ukraine, they harassed or attacked.  Several have been kidnapped.  They now live in constant fear.  We are receiving daily requests for humanitarian, communication, logistics, and other support to help them and their families.  Many have fled, others are braving it out – after all these are their ancestral homelands. 

Join us for a Maidan Mega Walk-a-thon on Saturday, May 10 for peace in Ukraine and to raise much needed funds.  Info can be found at

2:00 – 3:00    Registration at High Park (Lesya Ukrainka statue)
