Around 40 people joined together, in the eighth annual march of support for victims of domestic violence on Sunday afternoon.
Starting off at the Knights of Columbus hall in Fort Coulonge, the collaborative effort between the Knights and L’EntourElle, a support home for women, took participants in a three-kilometre-long trek, looking to show locals that there is a support network in place for them.
“This walk creates awareness,” said Marc Boisvert, an organizer and member of the Knights of Columbus. “If people see this march, they’ll know they’re not alone.”
