Help end violence against women by walking a mile in her shoes.
Goal: Raise $40,000 for emergency shelter for women and children
Walkers: 14 Teams: 1
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a fun-filled walk for families and corporate teams from across York Region. Walk a mile in high-heeled shoes, flats or flip-flops to break stereotypes, open minds and illustrate the challenges women face every day.
The 2017 Yellow Brick House Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® aims to raise $40,000 to provide women and children in York Region with a safe place to stay at our emergency shelters. Last year, at a critical time when support and safety were needed the most, 98 women and 141 children fleeing violence could not access a shelter bed.
Join your neighbours and co-workers for a walk you’ll remember!
