Help me take a stand against domestic violence!
I am proud to participate, once again, in the fundraising event YW WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES®! Did you know that family violence is the single largest woman's health issue in Canada, with more reported cases than heart attack and stroke? It affects women of all races, ages, socio-economic classes and educational backgrounds - and in many cases, it involves children.
On Sunday, September 15, 2019 I hope to walk through Southcentre Mall waring high heel shoes to help women and their children walk away from family violence. Funds raised at this event continue to support YW Calgary’s efforts to empower women to move from a position of vulnerability to one of sustainable strength and opportunity through providing housing and shelter, counseling, education and outreach. This will be my 2nd year participating; last year I raised $600 with help from my friends, work colleagues and family. Please help me reach my 2019 goal of $1,000.
Participating and fundraising for this event will help make a difference for the 5,800 clients and almost 2,000 children who access services at the YW Calgary, and the thousands more that will need to reach out for help this year.
Along with my colleagues from the Rotary Club of Calgary Olympic and other Rotarians, we are hoping to help the YW reach their 2019 goal of $250,000.
