Alberta has one of the highest rates of domestic abuse in Canada and the statistics continue to rise in Calgary. We also know that these figures only speak to the reported incidents of domestic abuse. You likely know a woman who has experienced some form of violence or abuse.
We need to come together as a community and see an end to domestic abuse - full stop. YW Calgary is calling women and men to rally their friends and families to participate in or donate to the 14
annual YW WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® event. On Sunday, September 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., participating women, men and children will strut through Southcentre Mall in the shoes of their choice to raise funds that will provide services and support to women and their children who are fleeing family violence.
Together we can break the cycle of violence for women and their children. Safe communities and healthy families mean brighter futures for all.
