Walk A Mile in Her Shoes is an event organized by Women’s Sexual Assault Centre (WSAC). This event was created to bring men together to create awareness, to end sexualized violence and walk a mile too. Family and friends also joined the men during the walk. Each participant raises funds through pledge. Those funds support the activities and programs that WSAC develops for the Victoria area.
This year, different members of the RRU community participated in this event: Paul Corns, Associate Vice-president of Community Relations and Advancement, Steve Grundy, Vice-president Academic and provost, Pedro Marquez, Dean of the Faculty of Management, and five alumni from the MGM program, Andrea Torres Lopez, Michael Munro, Gord Paterson, Miles Garvey and Michael Porter decided to take part (pictured above).
The WSAC goal was to raise $30,000. Through the generosity of individuals WSAC has been able to raise just over $19,000. The campaign will be open until the end of June. For those who are still thinking of supporting 2013 Walk A Mile, you can still pledge and support the work that WSAC does. Otherwise, do not hesitate to take part in the Walk A Mile 2014!
