‘The Heavy North Walk a Mile in her Shoes® Wood Buffalo’ walk is a symbolic gesture of men marching in high heel footwear to raise funds and awareness on the issues of violence against women. The walk gives men the opportunity to publicly take a stand on the issues of violence against women; it shows that men are willing to stand together with women in making the world a safer place for all women and children. By taking part in the pledged walk, you will be making a statement that violence against women is not just a women who feel the effects, but an entire community.
Please take the pledge, take a stand, and walk to raise awareness.

Make a Difference
And let the “heeling” begin!
How you make a difference in three easy steps:
1. Say Yes: men, sign up as an individual or recruit a team to join you in the Walk a Mile in her Shoes event.
2. Collect Pledges: Ask your colleagues, suppliers, clients, family, and friends – anyone who will give you money to walk around in a pair of heels, and invite them to attend the walk. Each individual registrant will have an online pledge page created and a pledge form so all of your supporters can donate either online or in person.
3. Walk the Walk: Walk by yourself –with a team- with your “coach”. Busy or out of town? No problem. Make a donation or reach your fundraising goal and ‘delegate’ a friend to walk for YOU! Don’t want to walk? Donations are accepted at any time.
