Thank you for Walking a Mile in Her Shoes!

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2015

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2015 Support Soars!

On Sunday September 27th  a group of over 150 kind souls gathered in the beautiful sunshine to cheer on the 68 men who took up the challenge of walking a mile in women’s shoes around Pinafore Park in St. Thomas.  Together they stepped up in support of the hundreds of women and children who find safety and counsel every year at Women’s Place – Elgin’s Emergency Shelter. 

Thanks to hundreds of pledges of support from family, friends and colleagues….

$25,000 was raised!

This kindness means that women and children who have experienced abuse can access real time assistance – 24 hours a day – at no cost, from anywhere in St. Thomas and Elgin County. 

Thank you for the gift of your community spirit and beautiful generosity!  We are fortunate to work with many men who want to create safety for women and children and give their energy, financial support, and leadership to make it happen.
