  The Walk for Values began at the Sathya Sai School in Scarborough, Ontario in 2003. It has since grown into an international event. Sri Sathya Sai Baba Centre is a non-denominational and non-political spiritual organization; it is registered as a non-profit charitable organization. The Sai Centres spread over multiple cities in over 120 countries recognize the fundamental unity of all religions of the world, and their main mission is to promote spiritual, educational and community service activities. The Saskatoon Open Door Society is a non-profit organization in Saskatoon that has been working with newcomers and the community since 1981. Its mission is to welcome and assist immigrants and refugees to become informed and effective participants in Canadian society, and to include the community in their hospitable reception and just acceptance. Multi-Faith Society is a non-profit organizations of Different Faith Groups in Saskatoon. W4V is a walkathon in which no money is solicited; instead, people are asked to pledge to try to live up to one or more of the human values in their lives in the hope one will make the world richer by giving (one’s) commitment to practice values, and character-building. By walking together as kindred spirits, we can achieve two things: (1) we can raise awareness of positive human values such as love, truth, non-violence and peace; and (2) more importantly, we can bring attention to the urgent need to practice them in our community and halt the social and environmental ills that impoverish our lives and our spirit. The five fundamental Human Values advocated by W4V: Love: caring, compassion, forgiveness, enthusiasm, devotion Peace: contentment, humility, patience, self-confidence, self-respect Truth: honesty, integrity, optimism Non-Violence: gentleness, consideration, co-operation, equality, cultural respect Right-Conduct: gratitude, perseverance, determination, responsibility, sacrifice, courage, duty and ethics Let’s Walk for Values and make a difference one step at a time.
