Runaways

Police forces define a runaway as follows: “A child less than 18 years of age who runs away from the family home or from a substitute place of residence.”

Runaways are not bad children! They are usually children that possibly face various problems in their family milieu. Some situations become so intolerable to them that they end up thinking that living anywhere else would be better than living in the family home. Parents are not always aware of the problems that their children face, and then one day, disaster strikes and they run away. This event is followed by a period of great anxiety, stress and soul-searching for the parents.

Given the number, frequency and profile of the young people involved, there is an unfortunate tendency to down play this type of disappearance. Runaways are vulnerable. Since they must take care of themselves, there is a very real risk that they will become involved in criminal activities such as prostitution, drugs, theft or others.

Thank you for all of your time and devotion to something we hold very dear; the safety of our students!!

We are excited to announce that Véronique Saumure will be rowing with us in honor of missing children on June 9th!

" When you have children, it's unimaginable to think that they can leave BEFORE you. The mere thought that they can disappear in a matter of seconds, is terrifying. In order to bring these children home, we need a lighthouse. A light that will help guide them home. The Missing Children's Network is a beacon of hope, not only for the missing, but for all those who remain.

******* I allow myself to reshape this African proverb: "It takes a whole village to" find "a child". ****** Let's be this village on June 9th! Let's join forces and row towards the same goal!

I will be dragon boating on that day and I need your encouragement, your presence, your support! "Alone we advance faster, together we advance further"! Thank you xoxo "
