About YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
When and where is this year's walk?
12 noon on Friday, May 25, 2018 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 for women and children at YWCA Crossroads Shelter.
Together we can help women and children in our community escape violence and abuse. Every Safe Night ($45.96) has the power to save and change lives!
What is the 10 Safe Nights Prize?
In honour of the 10th Annual YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in Peterborough, every individual who raises 10 Safe Nights will be entered in a draw to win a $1,000 Primal Cuts gift certificate and two outdoor chaise lounge chairs valued at $1,200 from Leon's.
YWCA staff and volunteers are not eligible to win.
Who can participate?
YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes welcomes people of all ages, genders and abilities.
How do I register?
Ask friends and family to support you online, or download and print an optional pledge form.
Team captains are also encouraged to check out our new Team Captain Handbook.
What is the minimum pledge to participate?
1 Safe Night ($45.96) is required in order to receive a reusable water bottle, 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 25th.
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 25th?
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?
