Walk a Mile in HER Shoes
Gillian’s Place is excited to announce the 17th annual Walk a Mile in HER Shoes at the Pen Centre. Are you man enough? Prove it on Saturday October 14th and join the men’s march to end violence against women.
Walk a Mile in HER Shoes is a symbolic march that gives men and male-identifying allies the opportunity to take a stand against violence against women. We are abundantly grateful to our corporate sponsors, walkers, ambassadors, and donors, who over the past 16 years have helped raise over $1,390,000 for Gillian’s Place. Beyond raising vital funds for Gillian’s Place, the men’s march has helped spread awareness about violence against women in Niagara, and beyond.
Since the men’s march at the Pen Centre in 2020, Gillian’s Place has responded to a 91% increase across all areas of programming. This drastic increase in need for protection and support signals a dangerous and threatening increase in violence and abuse against women, children, Two-Spirit, genderqueer, trans, and non-binary folks.
More than ever before, Gillian’s Place needs Niagara’s male and male-identifying allies to rally and march to end violence against women this October. By walking and/or donating, you are raising awareness and ensuring that practical and compassionate services are there when protection and support is needed most.
