The Secwepemc Youth Run for Water-Protection of Water Threatened by the Kinder Morgan Pipeline Expansion.

Earlier this year, Secwepemc youth self-organized to run across Secwepemc'ulecw, through the communities where the Kinder Morgan expansion is scheduled to take pace. They began their run yesterday, and are currently by “Blue River BC”, unceded Secwepemc territory. In 3 short days, they plan to run to Kamloops BC at Aviation Way.

The youth aren't associated with an organization They self-organized this run, and they, along with their parents have been actively fundraising for this run to protect their sacred water. They're still seeking donations of gear, financial assistance, and billeting.
