Help me take a stand against domestic violence!
I am proud to participate 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 will walk through Southcentre Mall high heels (or other shoes of my choice!) to help women and their children walk away from family violence. Funds raised at this event 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.
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.
My personal goal is to raise $5,000 so we can reach the fundraising goal of $250,000 for the YW Calgary. I'm calling on you to please be a voice for those in need today by donating to this worthy cause. Every dollar counts!
Thank you for your support!
