Walk In Her Shoes is a global movement where participants walk 10,000 steps in solidarity with women and girls in the developing world, who often have to walk that distance daily to get water, food, firewood and other daily requirements, leaving little or no time to earn a living or go to school.
In Calgary, this 4th annual event will take place on March 4, 2018 at the Calgary Zoo. It is a fun, family friendly event (and a $25 registration fee includes a entry for 4 people into the zoo for the day – and many fun activities and snacks!) that raises awareness and funds for the work CARE does around the world.
CARE is one of Canada’s leading international development organizations – we have been active for over 70 years, and started by delivering “CARE packages” to war-torn Europe during and after World War II and have evolved today into one of the biggest humanitarian relief organizations in Canada. We put women and girls in the centre of all our programming, as when they are empowered and given the right tools they have the power to lift their entire communities out of poverty.
Registration is now open – and details can be found here: Calgary Walk In Her Shoes Challenge. Pre-registration is required, no tickets will be available at the door.
Join us for a fun family friendly event as we empower women and girls around the world.
As mentioned, Registration is only $25 and includes entry for up to 4 people to the Calgary Zoo on March 4, including snacks, prizes and interactive learning activities. (such a good deal! Especially for any families)
Registration and details are now open at www.care.ca/calgarywalks
See you there!
