Walk A Mile In Their Shoes

YWCA Announces Return of Long-Time Fundraising Event for 2024: Walk A Mile In Their Shoes

YWCA Peterborough Haliburton proudly shares that one of our most popular community events is coming back to town.

Walk A Mile In Their Shoes returns to Peterborough on Friday, May 24 to raise funds for YWCA programs and services helping women and children recover from gender-based violence.

Dig out your red shoes, grab your friends, family or colleagues, and join the YWCA at Confederation Park for a walk around downtown Peterborough. Check-in for participants will open at 11:00 am and the walk will begin at 12:00 pm.

Participants can sign up as a solo walker or with a team, and we encourage local groups and businesses to challenge others to a fundraising contest for a good cause!

Registration for the event is $40 for a limited-time Early Bird rate. The fee includes lunch at the event, a custom water bottle, and a T-shirt in preferred size for each participant.

Register today and create your personal fundraising page, or sponsor someone with a donation: www.walkamilepeterborough.com

All ages, genders, and abilities are welcome, and the walking route will accommodate accessibility and mobility devices.

Proceeds from Walk A Mile In Their Shoes will support the YWCA’s Journey of Care, which encompasses each of the signature programs and services offered to the women, children, and gender-diverse people we serve.

From our Crossroads Shelter to our START Program and everything in between, your support ensures that a woman who is fleeing gender-based violence not only has a safe place to recover, but also the wrap-around healing programming she needs as she stands on her own, walking her path to the life of her choosing, free from fear and violence.

For questions about the event or support with fundraising, please contact the YWCA at 705-743-3526 or walkamile@ywcapeterborough.org.
