Walk A Mile In Her Shoes
2019 marks the 5th annual “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” event organized & hosted by the Hanover Rotary Club. In the past, the walk has been held on the Saturday of Father’s Day week-end but the date this year will be ONE WEEK LATER; Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 because Father’s Day week-end falls during our Rotary District Conference & Rotarians will be attending the conference. We will return to the Saturday of Father’s Day week-end in 2020. YES….we provide the shoes and have all sizes available.
Our goal is to bring awareness about the serious causes, effects and remediation to men’s sexualized violence against women and to also raise much needed funds for the Women’s Centre Grey Bruce (in Owen Sound) and for Women’s House in Kincardine. Both these shelters serve women & children in all of Grey & Bruce counties. In addition to shelter, these 2 organizations provide many excellent & much needed programs and assistance to women to help them move ahead.
With each passing year of this event, we have surpassed the previous year in funds raised. Last year, a total of approximately $8,300 was raised! Help us beat that total this year!
The Queen’s Bush is generously donating bbq burgers to participants again this year & there will be other snacks as well.
Pledge sheets available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 519 369-8534 or by dropping us a line via Facebook. Hope to see you there!!
