Its that time of year again! I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the YWCA of Calgary's Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event last year and I am excited to be able to take part again in 2011. This fun event helps raise money and awareness for domestic violence in Calgary and it really is a fun event.
I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received for this walk and would like to thank everyone that has donated and helped spread the word! Amazingly, most of my donations have come from Twitter and Facebook, which goes to show the power that social media has these days. I am also surprised by the response from local politicians of all political stripes that have stepped up and donated to this great cause. My donor list really is a broad reflection of all political parties and I am humbled by their generosity!
The event takes place on Monday, September 19 2011 at 12pm at Olympic Plaza. If you had a chance to see this event last year, it really is quite a scene! Watching hundreds of men strap on these high heels and try to negotiate the course is really quite funny to watch.
I would love to raise as much money as I can for this great cause and appreciate any donations we can raise for the YWCA. If you want to donate, please head over to http://www.walkamile.ca/page.aspx?pid=253&tab=0&frsid=823
I'll be sure to post some pictures and videos once the event is over!
