Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Red Deer 2019
THE INTERNATIONAL MEN'S MARCH TO STOP RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT & GENDER VIOLENCE


Have you ever heard the saying, You never know a person’s story until you have walked a mile in their shoes?

The Outreach Centre (Women's Outreach) invites you to the 8th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event on Thursday, June 13th, 2019.  Our centre has served Central Alberta since 1984 and it is our mission to end family violence and poverty by supporting people in pursuit of a safer, healthier and more secure life.

This is an exciting community fundraiser that sees over a hundred men slip into stiletto heels and strut their stuff in style for a mile; raising eyebrows and funds for Outreach Centre programs.  Our event is expanding this year with a pancake breakfast as well as a BBQ lunch, live entertainment, and family fun. This year we are looking to raise $75,000 that will help us continue to deliver programs to individuals and families who are experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, poverty and many other barriers faced by local community members in these challenging times.

We are asking local gentlemen sign up to collect pledges from those who would like to see them don a pair of stiletto heels and try to make the mile. But it's not just for men! We encourage anyone and everyone to collect pledges, either alone or in teams,  and join in on event day to support the brave 'soles' who are willing the wear the heels and walk the walk.

You can also show your support by attending event day to cheer on our walkers, purchase a pancake breakfast or BBQ lunch (or both!) and visiting our sponsor booths.  Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available, please get in touch with us!

All About the Shoes

A Pair of Red Stilettos Has Been Reserved for You!5cc35cd751ebe.jpg

Here's some tips to get you going:

Wear band-aids to prevent blisters

Practice standing in high heels so you can get a sense of the shoes and your posture

Put your shoulders back

Tuck in your stomach

Stick out your chest

Land on the balls of your feet and not your heels (Think Toe Heel, Toe Heel, Toe Heel...)

Use your thigh muscles when you lift your feet

Walk one foot in front of the other

Take your time to walk the first few steps to avoid tripping

Walk confidently and have fun!
