Royal LePage Gardiner Realty in Fredericton, New Brunswick hosted their annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event on September 11. More than 90 men donned red high heels and walked a full mile along a downtown route to raise funds and awareness for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Fredericton’s Women In Transition House. Special guests included MP Matt DeCourcey; Deputy Premier and Minister Stephen Horsman; Oromocto mayor Bob Powell; many City of Fredericton councillors and, most notably, members of the fire and police departments wearing full gear.

“This year’s walk was a resounding success with a great time had by all,” said organizer and Royal LePage Gardiner Realty broker-owner Lincoln Thompson. “We are very proud of the $21,550 raised in support of women and children escaping violence and rebuilding their lives.”
