More than $20,000 was raised at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes™ events in Halifax and New Minas, NS. All proceeds support local women’s shelters, Alice House and Chrysalis House via the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
Events were organized and hosted by professionals at local Royal LePage Atlantic brokerages. Both drew large crowds to support men and boys who signed up to walk a mile in high heeled shoes. Their efforts raise both awareness about gender-based violence and funds in support of organizations working to make a difference and keep women safe.
“We had an absolutely great event, with double the walkers from last year,” said Gary Morse, manager at Royal LePage Atlantic in New Minas. “This is such a feel-good and important event. We can’t wait to take things up another level next year in support of our local shelter!”
