About YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

When and where is this year's walk?

12 noon on Friday, May 24, 2019 at Confederation Park (499 George St N, Peterborough).

What's it all about?

Funds raised through YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes support Safe Nights at YWCA Crossroads Shelter for women and children fleeing abuse.

Together we can help women and children in our community escape violence and abuse. Every Safe Night has the power to save and change lives!

Who can participate? 

YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes welcomes people of all ages, genders and abilities. 

How do I register?

Simply choose to Register as a WalkerCreate a Team or Join a Team online.

Ask friends and family to support you online, or download and print an optional pledge form (coming soon).

Team captains are also encouraged to check out our Team Captain Handbook (coming soon). 

What is the minimum pledge to participate?

1 Safe Night is required in order to receive shoes and lunch on the day of the walk.

How can I get shoes?

Red heels will be available in men’s and women’s sizes on a first come first served basis following check in on Friday, May 24th.

Please remember: The shoes are just a symbol. Being present at the walk and fundraising for a cause you believe in is what makes all the difference for local women and children fleeing abuse. We encourage participants to wear shoes they feel comfortable in (i.e., their own high heels, red flats, etc.).

When and where do I check in on Friday, May 24th?

Check in is mandatory for all participants and begins at 11:00 am at Confederation Park, across from Peterborough City Hall. 

Where will I be walking?

As in previous years, the Walk will begin at 12 noon at Confederation Park and will proceed down George St to King St, up Water St and return to Confederation Park.

Who should I contact if I have questions?
