Royal LePage Atlantic recently hosted two Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® fundraising events. Offices in Halifax, NS and New Minas, NS participated, raising a total of $13,000 in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® events are a way for men to raise awareness in their community about the seriousness of violence against women and to raise funds in the process by collecting donations to walk a mile wearing red high-heeled shoes.
Proceeds raised in Halifax benefited Alice Housing, while funds raised by participants in New Minas were directed to Chrysalis House. Both organizations are dedicated to providing a safe haven to women and their children fleeing violence.
