The office is a-buzz with activity finalizing all things Walk A Mile!
The Participant's Handbook can be download here (pdf)
There is still time to register if you haven't already. Even if you can't make it down to Nathan Phillips Square tomorrow at noon, you can still participate by:
- Sponsoring a walker!
- Donating to the event!
- Wearing heels to work - support the cause!
- Inviting your friends to participate or pledge!
Think slipping on some heels is too tough a challenge? Here are some tips from Enza Anderson:
- Avoid Walking Like A Trucker
- Shoulders Back/Chest Out/Back Straight/Swing The Hips
- Heels and Grates Don’t Match
- Show No Fear
- Use A Friend As A Crutch.
- Don't take your shoes off in public.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® provides several opportunities to get people talking. For preventive education, it helps men better understand and appreciate women’s experiences, thus changing perspectives, helping improve gender relationships and decreasing the potential for violence. For healing, it informs the community that services are available for recovery. It demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place.
