Walk A Mile in Her Shoes
Stepping into a violence-free future
On Sunday, September 18, 2016 men of the Sea to Sky Corridor are invited to step into the forefront of an international movement to end violence against women. Last year, forty-eight men strapped on heels to take a public stand against violence against women, raising $4,576 for Howe Sound Women’s Centre Society.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Sunday, September 18, 2016
O’Siyam Pavilion Park
Cleveland Avenue, Squamish
Event Day Schedule:
Registration: 11:30 am
Walk starts: 12:00 noon
We are encouraging participants to raise a minimum of $25 in pledges.
All proceeds support programs of Howe Sound Women’s Centre Society.
Despite the seriousness of the topic, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a fun family event. Men are encouraged to gather pledges and bring awareness about the event as they prepare for the big day in which they will march approximately one mile in women’s high heel shoes. Friends and family are encouraged to march as well alongside participants in support of a safer, more equitable and violence-free society for women and girls.
We encourage you to have fun forming teams and challenging others from your place of work, your family or your friends! We also ask that the walkers dress as they normally would and strongly encourage uniforms and work gear (no women’s clothing please).
You can encourage friends and families living out of town to pledge by guiding them to www.canadahelps.org, where they can make a donation to the Howe Sound Women’s Centre Society in your name as you simultaneously record this amount on your pledge form.
