A community event, in partnership with the Mamidosewin Centre, this is the 5th annual fundraising run in support of Families of Sisters in Spirit, a grassroots initiative that supports loved ones of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and transgender and two-spirit people. Since 2015, his annual marathon, Theland’s Journey, has raised more than $5,000 for Families of Sisters in Spirit. The group, Tolley says, offers money and supplies to the children’s caretakers and also organizes events, such as a free supper in Ottawa in February 2018, where Indigenous women could pick up clothing, toys and household goods. Theland’s run, she says, has become a key fundraiser for the organization, which has helped about 400 families so far.
