TAKE A STEP FORWARD! Calling all Men who care about the Women & Girls in their Lives!
Brockville – LGIH is excited to be holding our 1st Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® fundraising event to raise funds and awareness for the elimination of violence against women. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® combines big hearts with big feet as men and their supporters walk down King Street, Brockville in women’s shoes, raising money and awareness to support violence prevention programs in this community.
100% of funds raised will support Leeds & Grenville Interval House, our local Shelter and Services for abused women and their children.
We are asking men of all ages to participate in this march by registering a team of walkers, becoming an event sponsor or donating to the event, and promoting the march among your networks; help us to recruit walkers as individuals or teams by challenging your friends, families, & colleagues to join you. Help us to fill King Street East for this event by showing your support for this worthy cause. Women and Children are welcome to join this event as well; Families walking together are encouraged too!
