A mile in high heels for a good cause
On Saturday, October 6, dozens of men will don bright red stilletos and walk a mile-long route in downtown Collingwood to raise funds for My Friend’s House, southern Georgian Bay’s only shelter and support program for women and their children escaping violence and abuse.
The event is part of the worldwide “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence,” and we’re proud to inform you that the Creemore Echo’s own Fred Mills has graciously, and somewhat bravely, volunteered to take part.
All funds raised during the event will go to My Friend’s House, which every year must raise large sums of money to cover its funding shortfall. This year, the organization’s fundraising goal is $175,000.
The Echo has pledged $100 to Fred’s high-heeled walk, and we encourage our readers to support him as well. To donate, CLICK HERE.
