WRRC will not be hosting in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes this fall, and instead will focus on different opportunities.
Over the last few years, the Walk a Mile event has engaged the community to bring awareness and support for issues surrounding Violence against Women. WRRC has always gratefully received many volunteer hours and efforts in making this event happen.
Upon review with our staff, WRRC has decided not to host the event this year. While we applaud other communities for moving this initiative forward, financially, it was no longer successful as a fundraiser for WRRC. As a result, we have decided not to host the event this year.
With this in mind, we have decided to redirect our resources to other fundraising opportunities within our community. We have already begun work on these events, and look forward to sharing further details with our community when it’s appropriate.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers and supporters who have helped us with Walk A Mile. We are so incredibly grateful for all the time, energy and work you have dedicated to helping women in Strathroy-Middlesex. We wouldn’t be where we are without you.
