Event description

Description

Hosted in Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton and Kelowna, Walk in Her Shoes challenges Canadians to walk in solidarity with women and girls in developing countries, who walk an average of 10,000 steps every day to collect the basic necessities their families need to survive —water, food and firewood. Because of this, many impoverished women and girls have little time to get an education or earn an income.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural challenge in Ottawa – when over three hundred people, including MPs, Senators, students, employees and others weathered cold wind and rain to walk in support of women worldwide – the Walk in Her Shoes challenge will occur on March 6, 2018. Beginning with registration and addresses from dignitaries on Parliament Hill at 11:30, the short walk will end at Ottawa City Hall with activities wrapping up at 1:00pm. CTV will once again be a sponsor of the event, and local and national media are expected.
