It wasn’t the easiest mile to walk for this group of guys, but they got it done.
More than $20,000 was raised at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes™ events in Halifax and New Minas, Nova Scotia. Both drew large crowds to support the kindhearted men and boys who signed up to walk a mile in high-heeled shoes. All proceeds support local women’s shelters, Alice House and Chrysalis House via the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
The events were organized and hosted by professionals at local Royal LePage Atlantic brokerages. The goal of these events are to raise awareness about gender-based violence and collect donations in support of organizations working to keep women safe.
“We had an absolutely great event, with double the walkers from last year,” said Gary Morse, manager at Royal LePage Atlantic in New Minas. “This is such a feel-good and important event. We can’t wait to take things up another level next year in support of our local shelter!”
