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 (across from Peterborough City Hall)

What's it all about?

Donations to YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes support Safe Nights for women and children at YWCA Crossroads Shelter.

By providing everything they'll need, 1 Safe Night at a time, together we can help women and children face and overcome the immense challenge of rebuilding their lives after fleeing violence and abuse. Every Safe Night ($45.96) has the power to save and change lives!

What's new in honour of the 10th Annual YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in Peterborough?

Coming soon!

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. 

What is the minimum pledge to participate?

1 Safe Night - $45.96 - is required in order to receive shoes, a reusable water bottle 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. Submit your signed pledge form (coming soon!) and cash/cheque pledges to receive your wristband.

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?
