Bob Murray, an electrician, died when the hydro pole he was on collapsed taking him down with it. On May 4, 2014, Bob’s son Graham Murray will be one of many participants in Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy. Winnipeg will participate in this annual event along with more than 35 other communities across the country. All proceeds from Steps for Life events will support families of workplace tragedy with Threads of Life Family Support programs and services.
Murray says, “The Steps for Life walk is a great way to raise safety awareness and let everybody know that they are not alone in their circumstance. If it wasn’t for Threads of Life, who knows where I’d be on my journey of healing. They have given myself and many others the ability to heal, yet instill confidence and courage to be able to honour our loved ones thorough this walk and whatever else we may choose to do in life.”
