Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Set For Tomorrow

The ninth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, hosted by the Thompson YWCA, is set to take place tomorrow afternoon. 

 

The event, which first launched in California back in 2001, is a fundraiser awareness walk meant to spark a discussion on violence against women and girls.

 

Here in Thompson, the YWCA uses the walk to help raise funds towards programs that help prevent that violence. 

 

Freddy Routhier, from the YWCA, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that the walk itself is set to start at 4:30pm tomorrow, with pre-walk activities starting around 2:00pm.

 

Routhier said that those who have registered to take part should arrive before the walk starts to hand in any money raised and to find a pair of shoes that fit.
