Hundreds “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” in Sylvan Lake

Published on

Over $7000 raised for the programs and services offered to clients at The Outreach Centre

On June 2, students, staff and community members of all ages walked in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event in Sylvan Lake. Presented by the HJ Cody Interact Club, the fifth annual event raised funds for The Outreach Centre and brought attention and awareness to gender-based and domestic violence issues in the community.

“Walk a Mile in Her Shoes events emphasize the necessity of speaking up and taking steps to end gender-based and domestic violence,” says Ian Wheeliker, Executive Director at The Outreach Centre. “These events start difficult yet necessary conversations about gender relations and violence against both women and men.”

Starting at H.J. Cody Highschool, participants walked one mile, some in a pair of high heeled shoes.

There was also a community-sponsored BBQ lunch, and a presentation with speakers and prizes. Author and town councillor Teresa Rilling told her own powerful story of overcoming emotional and sexual abuse, encouraging anyone who is suffering to reach out for help and support.

With about 600 people walking and over $7000 raised, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Sylvan Lake was once again a huge success.

“We are so grateful for the ongoing support of the H.J. Cody Interact Club and the entire school community,” says Wheeliker. “These students are truly making a difference and they should feel proud knowing that their efforts will go towards improving the lives of the clients we serve at The Outreach Centre.”
