The Elsie McGraw Memorial Walk Coming Up Tomorrow

Voice Found Saint John hosting a walk in the uptown tomorrow in memory of a Saint Johner who fought for those without a voice.

Elsie McGraw dreamt of seeing local victims of child sexual abuse find the help they need but died unexpectedly earlier this year.

Local advocate Jessie Lanigan tells CHSJ News she met Elsie at a walk she organized last year and showed her a whole new way to raise awareness.

She says being around people who have similar experiences is powerful and uplifting adding they understand why you are the way you are and what you have been through.

The Elsie McGraw Memorial Walk is coming up tomorrow afternoon at 430pm. 

If you want to take part, meet at the King Square bandstand and you are encouraged to wear red.
