This event was amazing fun and over 200 men participated in the walk to raise money and awareness for domestic violence issues in Calgary. I was fortunate enough to take part in this walk and I must say, I really do knot understand how some women wear these shoes every day! I had a super sexy "wedge" shoe on, and while I hear I got off lucky compared to a 6 inch stiletto heel, my feet were killing me by the end of the walk!
Here is some video....
My goal was to raise $750 for the YWCA and I was also very fortunate to be able to raise close to $1100 for this great charity and I want to thank everyone that donated. My co-workers, friends and family were a great support and I was also amazed by the response on Twitter where I did most of my fundraising! I received some interesting donations from local politicians including:
- MLA Art Johnston
- MLA Jonathon Denis
- Mayoral candidate Barb Higgins
- Ward 7 Alderman candidate Kevin Taylor
- Ward 11 Alderman candidate, Brian Pincott
- Ward 14 Alderman candidate, Shawn Kao
