Where: YWCA Calgary in Calgary, AB, Canada
YW WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® Presented by Shoppers Drug Mart is an annual fundraising event that asks women and men to STEP UP and take a stand to help break the cycle of family violence in our city. Although family violence is a very serious matter, this fun and light-hearted event asks participants to challenge each other to participate and help women and their children walk away from family violence.
Domestic abuse has steadily been rising in Calgary with the last few years showing 34% more incidents than the 5-year average. In fact, police responded to 3,089 domestic violence calls in the first three quarters of 2017.
On Tuesday, September 18, hundreds of Calgarians will put on a pair of high heels and strut down Stephen Avenue to support women and their families. Individuals register online and commit to fundraising $1,000 each so we can reach the fundraising goal of $250,000.
Through emergency shelter, housing, counselling, outreach and family access services, YW Calgary strives to enable women and children to live free of violence. We provide them with a safe and secure place to stay, case management, referrals and support while taking steps to cope with the trauma and crisis in their lives. We also help men in our adult programs, promoting long-term solutions to the issues.
To do this we need your help, challenge yourself or someone else today to fundraise and change the lives of hundreds of women and children trapped in domestic abuse.
