Register to Walk a Mile 2016

Walk: Sam Steele Days Parade on June 18, 2016.

This event asks men to walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes.

It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it’s fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: Gender relations and sexual violence.

1) Register online

2) Collect pledges from your friends, family and colleagues on the
Walker Pledge Form 2016

To collect pledges, try asking people: “How much would you pay to see me walk a mile in high-heeled shoes—during a big parade?”

3) Shoe Fitting and Pledge Collection :: Thursday, June 16.

At the Cranbrook Women’s Resource Centre, in the Community Connections Building, 209A 16th Avenue N. Cranbrook, BC.

Pick out and try out your high-heeled shoes and hand in all pledges.

4) Walk on parade day.

Check in by 9:30 am. We’ll be in the Cranbrook Ankors Building, #46- 17th Avenue South.

Then hit the streets and strut your stuff. At the end of the walk, we’ll collect the high-heeled shoes and issue your official Walk a Mile® wallet card.
