The Womens Resource Center is again holding an event called Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says men take part to raise money through pledges as well as awareness. She explains this year instead of marching down Main Street men are asked to join the float in the Canada Day Parade on July 1st and the parade starts at 11 and people are asked to be by the float at 10 am for judging. She adds the float will be decorated ahead of time with signs and the big red shoe chair and you can walk or ride carrying your placards and wearing your Walk a Mile t-shirts. Arnold notes it’s time to get pumped again and they thank all the brave men who signed up to help end violence against women and girls one man sized step at a time.
Pledge forms are still available at the Women’s Resource Center and they have men’s shoe sizes 9 to 14 in red high heels. For information or to have a pledge form sent to you call 204-681-3105. Donations raised will support the Women’s Safe Haven.
