This walk first began in August 2018 then under the name Drop the Needle, Pick up the Pace in honour of Chadd Cawson sister’s Jeni Leigh who he had lost the year prior. In 2019 Chadd met Jody Wasserman at his second walk who lost her brother Josh Zeller. The walk was rebranded A Walk for J in 2020n after the two decided they wanted to work together going forward. While walks were virtual in Winnipeg during 2020 and 2021. Cawson was able to host a 4th walk in Victoria, B.C. last year where he was living. This year the walk is back in Winnipeg at the Forks which was the former location for both walks in 2018 and 2019. Cawson will be traveling from BC to host the walk along with Jody Wasserman. Those wishing to partake can arrive at 6:30 there will be some water and purple glow stick necklaces handed out at the sign-in table for those who need. First come, first serve. Sensation Sound will be playing music before the walk begins. T-shirts can be ordered through Jody for more information contact Jody at jodywasserman@live .ca or. Chadd at chaddcawson@gmail.com
