Walk in HER Shoes
Thank you for supporting the 2018 Walk in HER Shoes event. This year’s event was the most successful to-date – participants and support from our community helped us raise over $10,000!
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.

ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON JUNE 15, 2018 AT 4:00 PM.
DAY-OF REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 10:00 AM ON SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2018 AT ORANGEVILLE TOWN HALL.
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.
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.
