Red Shoe Walk 2021

Sep 01, 2021 - Oct 01, 2021

After great consideration, My Friendís House has decided to reschedule our 10th annual Red Shoe Walk to September. Registered participants will leave their pages up but we will see them don their Red Heels in September! We chose September as it is My Friendís House 30th Anniversary (and there is a sincere hope that lockdowns will be far less likely). 👠

Join My Friendís House virtual Red Shoe Walk 2021 to end gender-based violence and discrimination.

September 1-30, 2021 - South Georgian Bay Ė My Friendís House annual awareness-raising event, Walk A Mile in Her Shoes, is now known as the virtual Red Shoe Walk! Step out with a pair of red heels that symbolize your commitment to end violence against women, girls, and people of all genders, and walk with hundreds of others across Ontario.

Participants can walk anytime during the month of September and share their experience on social media using #RedShoeWalk, thus showing their support in ending gender-based violence.

Over the past year, the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic heightened the magnitude of inequality women continually face from increased rates of domestic abuse to sexual violence and harassment within and outside the home.

Overall, 2020 was a year that alerted us to the necessity of overdue change.

With this yearís walk taking place virtually through the month of May, participants will be able to take stride and complete their mile anywhere they choose! My Friendís Houseís goal is to attract more than 100 participants to walk in solidarity for women and their children, while raising awareness and funds to end violence, promote equality, healthy relationships, and a true vision of masculinity. It is a momentous occasion for men to make a statement that violence against women and girls, is not only a women's issue - it's everyone's issue, and it will only be solved by everyone working together.

Participants can register online here Red Shoe Walk 2021 - Canada Helps and will be invited to celebrate virtually on October 8 to acknowledge all the teams, participants, and sponsors. Bring on your friends, colleagues, and family members and walk your neighborhoods or workspaces and add your voice to this important You will be able to show your allyship online through social media tagging @MyFriendsHouseCollingwood and using the hashtag #RedShoeWalk.
