Walk in HER Shoes
Take a walk in her shoes. Raise money. Help end the cycle of violence against women. It’s a win-win. Except, maybe, for feet.
The intent of the Walk in HER Shoes fundraiser is to raise eyebrows, awareness and money for Family Transition Place. Boys and men are encouraged to walk in solidarity towards ending the cycle of violence against women.
This walk raised over $6,500 in 2017, with approximately 40 men in attendance. Event proceeds support education initiatives to help break the cycle of violence. We thank our generous sponsors and our participants for being allies in our work.

Please click HERE for a copy of the event poster.
Participants will walk approximately half a kilometre along Broadway, stopping at sponsored locations for important messaging and a rest.
As it has been before, this event will be held the day before Father’s Day. Father’s Day represents a lot of different things for people, but we encourage men to participate in this walk as a role model – to show their kids that violence against women is not okay, and to help raise awareness on this issue.
Please feel free to reach out to friends, family, and co-workers to request pledges of support for your efforts. A prize will be awarded to the participant who raises the most money in support of thie event.REGISTER HERE
The format of this year’s walk has changed slightly. In previous years, we have provided pairs of pink high-heeled shoes for our participants. This year, we encourage participants to bring their own women’s shoes, each representing the many different walks of life. They could be women’s running shoes, sandals, slippers…you get the idea.
