First You Walk the Walk
There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
The Walk a Mile in HER Shoes® Red Deer VIRTUAL EDITION event is a pledge based, fundraising and public awareness campaign. The event features men who raise pledges, join together and literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. In response to the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Outreach Centre has chosen to adapt to the situation and will continue with a VIRTUAL event. This means you will be able to complete your mile, in heels, anywhere! Choose any day between May 15 and May 24, get your walk in, and then challenge 5 friends to take a walk too!
Then You Talk the Talk
Just as walking in the shoes may at times be difficult and uncomfortable, so can talking about sexualized violence. This is a fun event and abundant with opportunities to get people talking! For preventative 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 better place.

Your Participation is Important to Us
The fundraising efforts of all Walk A Mile in HER Shoes® Red Deer VIRTUAL EDITION event participants allows The Outreach Centre to deliver programs which provide many services to women, men and children who have chosen to pursue a healthier, safer and more secure life. Our goal is to ensure anyone living in or leaving an abusive relationship has access to someone who can respond to their crisis and support them. All of our services are confidential, free and available to anyone who’s experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, poverty and many other barriers faced in challenging times.
Each participant is challenged to set a suggested minimum fundraising goal of $500.
You can be part of making an impact in our community too!
