Walk A mile in Her Shoes combines big hearts with big feet and brings the whole community together for a great cause. The event premise is simple: Men walk the walk in women’s shoes, raising eyebrows and funds in support of Wellspring Family Resource and Crisis Centre, Whitecourt’s shelter for women and their children. Wellspring is committed to ensure that women and children fleeing abuse and in crisis have safe refuge and supports. Our Goal with events like these is to change perspectives, improve gender relationships and decrease the potential for violence • We want to get people talking. • to help men better understand and appreciate women’s experiences, • To inform the community that services are available for recovery. • To demonstrate that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place. Communities and Companies play a critical role in ending violence against women and children and their support of Wellspring sends a clear message about the importance of safe homes and zero tolerance for family violence. This event would not have been possible without the tremendous community support received including: our walkers, volunteers, corporate sponsors and community organizations.
