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, 280 women and 295 children fleeing violence could not access a shelter bed.
Join your neighbours and co-workers for a walk you’ll remember!
