A Walk a Mile for Orphans this Sunday at the Courtenay Airpark will help parentless children in Africa.

Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. for distances of three, seven or 10 kilometres. The opening ceremony will be at 2. Prizes and awards will be presented at 3:30.

Live music will be provided by Alan Jossul, Fiftieth Parallel, Adam Norman, Keisja Cox and Brodie Dawson.

After the walk, the Prime Chophouse and Wine Bar in Courtenay invites people starting at 4 p.m. From each special meal, $5 will be donated to the cause.

Every 14 seconds a child becomes an orphan due to AIDS in Africa. Without help, these children are left to care for themselves, and become marginalized in society.

Walk A Mile for Orphans will provide a thousand orphans in the Tabora region of Tanzania the opportunity to be empowered to live their best life. Not only are orphans provided fresh water, food, clothes, education and other essentials, but they are trained to succeed in life.

You can register online at http://myjumasworldcanada.kintera.org/faf/home and start fundraising. Rewards include a free trip for two to San Diego, iPads, iPods, and gift cards when you reach fundraising goals starting at $125.

For more information, visit the Event Info & Rewards section.
