An Invite to You from Friends of Laura Secord

Posted June 18th, 2019 on Niagara At Large

Niagara, Ontario – Each year in June, the Friends of Laura Secord host the Laura Secord Walk along the Laura Secord Legacy Trail from Queenston to Thorold (in Niagara, Ontario).

It’s an annual event that recreates her heroic 32 km journey to warn the British of an impending American invasion. Since its inception, thousands of people have walked all or part of the trail to commemorate her legacy. 

his year, we plan to make Laura’s walk even more meaningful. The Laura Secord Walk 2019 will support War Child Canada in their efforts to help thousands of women and children in war-affected areas, through the generational impacts of education, training, and justice.
