Walk. Sponsor a participant or a team. Volunteer.

YWCA WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® Presented by Back in Balance Wellness Centre is a signature YWCA event and one of our biggest fundraisers.

Although domestic and sexual violence are serious matters, this fun and light-hearted event asks registered participants to take a stand by stepping into a pair of heels and walking a mile around Galt Gardens to raise money and awareness in support of YWCA Lethbridge and District programs that fight domestic and sexual violence.

A note for our walkers . . .

The goal of this event is to raise money to help people who have experienced domestic or sexual violence.

We ask each participant to raise a minimum of $42.29 - that covers the difference between what the government pays and the actual cost of providing a women with a Safe Place for one night - in order to receive water, the use of a pair of shoes and lunch on the day of the walk.

Why not take this opportunity to ask your friends, family and co-workers to pitch in and sponsor you - how many Safe Places can YOU provide?

The shoes are just a symbol . . .

Walking and fundraising for an important cause that impacts our community will make the difference for the women, children and men dealing with abusive relationships or sexual violence.

We want EVERYONE to feel welcome to participate in YWCA WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® Presented by Back in Balance Wellness Centre.

We provide heels in a wide range of sizes and offer them to all participants, but please feel free to wear shoes you feel comfortable in, and please dress in accordance with your identity.
