CLARENCE CREEK | This year Lynn Shack- leton will not be alone when she sets out on her Walk of Memories in honour of her mother’s battle against ovarian cancer. She wasn’t alone last year when she be- gan what will now be an annual tribute to the memory of her mother. Her husband drove the support van ahead of her and sometimes walked alongside her for some stretches while a friend or other family member drove the van. But this year the Clarence Creek woman will have company beside her along the en- tire long two-week trek. Her sister, Nathalie, is joining her and together they will walk from Notre Dame Basilica in Ottawa all the way to St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montréal. “We’ll be stronger by two,” Shackleton said, with a smile. Last year’s debut Walk for Memories was from Rockland to Valleyfield, QC, to the cemetery where her mother, Rita, is buried. That was about 160 kilometres of steady walking for Shackleton over more than a week. This year’s walk is half again as lon- ger for distance and could take close to two weeks to complete. Rita’s daughters have several reasons for increasing the distance. More time on the road with each other, sharing stories and memories of their mother. More opportu- nities to meet people and spread the word about the need to fund ovarian cancer re- search. And more time to train for future pilgrimage they hope to Spain and the Way of St. James. “Some day my sister and I, we would like to do the Compostela,” Shackleton said. “They also call it St James’Way, and that’s an 800-kilometre trek.” The Way of St. James was one of the most important Christian pilgrimages during medieval times. Legend says that one of the routes featured as the pilgrimage is the same as the one used to transport the body of St. James to its final resting place at what is now Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. It remains one of the key pilgrim- ages for many of the faithful, just like Walk for Memories for Shackleton and her sister is more than just a way to remember and honour their mother. “It is a pilgrimage,” she said. “It’s not a race. There’s something very spiritual about walking. I felt my mom the whole way last year. She left me signs everywhere.” Signs like finding l’Isle de Rita at the Voy- ager Parc campsite along the way, some-
