Pace Community Support, Sexual Assault, and Trauma Centre
The Pace Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is a pledge based fundraising and public awareness campaign that sees participants literally walk a mile in high-heeled shoes in order to encourage dialogue around issues of gender based violence. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event creates an atmosphere of openness and fun around subjects that can often be difficult to talk about while encouraging men in our communities to be allies in the fight to end gender based violence.
Men are strongly encouraged to register, however registration and participation in our event is open to all members of the community who wish to create awareness around issues of gender based violence and raise funds in support of Pace. Businesses and agencies are encouraged to put together teams and challenge others in the community to do the same.
Sign in will begin at 5:00PM on event day and participants will receive a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® swag bag, a meal ticket, and high heeled shoe rental (available on a first come, first serve basis for those who are not able to provide their ow). Following the completion of our walk around the 101st block, we will enjoy a delicious, locally prepared meal, while participants have the opportunity to have their pictures taken at our NCP Studios Photo Booth, and get massages for their tired, achy feet. Gratitude, appreciation, and prizes will follow!
