It’s hard to believe that two months have flown by since Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj and her team began their walk out of Kyiv.

Tomorrow, over 300 camp participants, sponsors, international volunteers and members of the Canadian Armed Forces will accompany the walkathon team for the final 5km, to the start of this year’s summer camp.

Twenty-five years ago, Wrzesnewskyj founded “Help Us Help the Children” (HUHTC), a registered Canadian charity, which delivers humanitarian aid to orphanages all over Ukraine, organizes life skills camps for orphan children, and runs a scholarship program for graduates of the orphanage system. Since it’s inception, over 11,000 children have been directly impacted by the organization’s initiatives.

The team of walkers is made up of orphans, dedicated sponsors, and volunteers, including
