The public is invited to participate in a ‘Mom’s March’ on Monday, March 30 from Lewis Park to Courtenay City Hall.

The event is a way to show support for the sisters, aunts, friends, co-workers, grandmothers and mothers who do so much for us in our daily lives.

“I was inspired on International Women’s Day, which was March 18, to bring the community together in some way,” organizer Evangeline Mathura said. “I felt compelled to do something that shows my love and support for people who are having a tough time.”

She encourages attendees to wear pink and purple colours, and to bring strollers.

The march begins at 5 p.m. at Lewis Park. Walkers will cross the Fifth Street Bridge and proceed to City Hall. For more information, contact Mathura at 250-871-5116.
