Walk A Mile In Her Shoes – Grande Prairie

The Pace Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® campaign is our annual pledge based fundraising and public awareness campaign in recognition of Sexual Violence Awareness Month (#SVAM) in Alberta! This event asks participants to literally walk a mile in high-heeled shoes in order to encourage dialogue around issues of sexual violence.

A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event creates an atmosphere of openness and fun around subjects that can often be difficult to talk about while encouraging men in our communities to be allies in ending sexual violence.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

We strongly encourage Men to register as individuals or as part of a team, however registration and participation is open to all members of the community who wish to create awareness and support for those impacted by sexual violence, and who wish to raise funds in support of Pace.

REGISTRATION

All participants must pay the registration fee and sign the release waiver prior to the beginning of the walk. A registration fee of $20 per participant applies.

You may register as an individual or as part of a Team. Those who join a Team can designate a Team Captain and create a Team Name. Costumes and uniforms are highly encouraged, along with fun team names! We ask that you please consider the nature of the event and our organization in deciding on costumes and team names.

Family & friends are welcome and encouraged to attend the event to cheer on our Walkers!

Custom Swag, a BBQ Meal from Red Rock Urban BBQ and shoe rental is included in the registration cost.  Friends and family may purchase meal tickets on site on event day.
