Thank you to everyone who participated this year! See you in 2021!
First You Walk the Walk
There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
The Walk A Mile in HER Shoes® event is a pledge based, fundraising and public awareness campaign. Men with big feet and big hearts are asked to raise pledges and join together to walk a mile in women’s high heeled shoes.
Then You Talk the Talk
Just as walking in the shoes may at times be difficult and uncomfortable, so can talking about sexualized violence. This is a fun event and abundant with opportunities to get people talking! For preventative education, it helps men better understand and appreciate women’s experiences, thus changing perspectives, helping improve gender relationships and decreasing the potential for violence. For healing, it informs the community that services are available for recovery.
It demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a better place.
Put Yourself in HER Shoes™
Get pumped and register for the Walk a Mile in HER Shoes® event! It doesn’t take much to make an impact. It takes a desire to make a difference, no matter how small.

Ladies, step up and register to walk alongside our brave soles as they attempt to complete the mile!
Your Participation is Important to Us
The fundraising efforts of all Walk A Mile in HER Shoes® participants allows The Outreach Centre to deliver programs which provide many services to women, men and children who have chosen to pursue a healthier, safer and more secure life. Our goal is to ensure anyone living in or leaving an abusive relationship has access to someone who can respond to their crisis and support them. All of our services are confidential, free and available to anyone who’s experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, poverty and many other barriers faced in challenging times.
Each participant is challenged to set a suggested minimum fundraising goal of $500.
