Banff Walk a Mile 2010

05 Sep

Sign up or sponsor someone for the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event in Banff.

The goal is to raise both funds and awareness for domestic violence. It is run by the local YWCA in Banff. Men in business or public service in the Bow Valley have been asked to spread awareness and/or to seek pledges to support them as they walk around town in some fetching high heels for this cause! Like it says on the Banff walk a mile website “it’s a fun event for a serious cause”.

For those of you interested in more information about this initiative and would like to spread the word, the national site is This year the event takes place in Halifax, Calgary and Banff.

The YWCA is a not-for-profit organisation and they offer a valuable service to women, men and families in the Bow Valley.

On the Banff walk a mile website there is a link to “Support a Walker”. We are supporting a good friend Spencer Schneider and encourage you too if you don’t have anyone to sponsor. You can find Spence listed under “individual walkers”. There is a really easy online credit card form that will generate an instant receipt. There is also a registered charity number on the site as well. Proceeds go towards funding local domestic violence and housing initiatives and services.

The event takes place next week on Friday on Sept. 11, 2009. Our friend Spencer has already started practicing his runway walk…..

Thank you for spreading the word and please retweet this to your friends and encourage them to donate!
