About YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Violence against women is NOT okay! Together, we can ensure that women and their children have a safe, secure place to turn right here in Peterborough.
When and where is this year's event?
Participants are encouraged to visit the Registration Tent at Confederation Park (499 George St N, Peterborough) between 11:00-11:45 am on Friday, May 24th to sign-in.
The walk will begin at 12 noon, travelling from George St to King St, up Water St and returning to Confederation Park.
What's NEW this year?
*T-Shirt and Lunch available with minimum pledge of 1 Safe Night - $64.65
What will my fundraising efforts support?
All funds directly support Safe Nights at YWCA Crossroads Shelter for women and children fleeing abuse.Learn more about the importance of Safe Nights here.
Who can participate?
All ages, genders, abilities are welcome!
What does 'All Shoes for All Abilities' mean?
Folks are encouraged to wear any shoes they'd like at this year's event (i.e., their own high heels, red flats, running shoes, flip flops, etc.) because showing up to protect women and their children from violence matters a whole lot more than what's on your feet!
A limited number of red high heels will be available in men's and women's sizes on a first come first served basis upon check-in on Friday, May 24th.
What is the 1 Safe Week Prize?
This year, participants who raise over $452.55 (1 Safe Week at YWCA Crossroads Shelter = $64.65 x 7 days) will be entered in a draw to win a $500 gift certificate generously donated by Primal Cuts and a 3 Piece Conversation Set (valued at $799), generously donated by Leon's Peterborough.
How do I register?
Ask friends and family to support you online, or download and print an optional pledge form.
