The Womens Resource Centre is again holding a event called Walk A Mile in Her Shoes July 1st. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says men take part to raise money through pledges as well as awareness. She explains the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an international men’s march to end violence against women so they’re asking men to get pumped and join the float at the Canada Day parade. She says you can walk, you can ride, you can do a little bit of both and you can get pledges for your walk so you can just call the Women’s Resource Centre and there will again be a Red Shoe Trophy for the one with the most pledges.
The Walk takes place during the Canada Day Parade on July 1st starting at 11 o’clock on Green Street in front of CFAR. For information or to have pledge forms sent to you call the Centre at 204-681-3105. They have men’s sizes 9 to 14 in red high heels. Donations raised will support the Women’s Safe Haven.
