Thank you for your interest in YW Calgary’s 2020 WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® event.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, participants, volunteers and community members. As a result of COVID-19 and after much consideration, YW Calgary has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® event.
We’d like to thank our past participants, volunteers and sponsors for their on-going support.
Domestic violence rates in Calgary are some of the highest in Canada. YW Calgary’s programs and services, including our Sheriff King Home emergency shelter, are essential supports for women and their children affected by domestic violence. We need the support of our community more than ever. Please consider making a personal donation so that we can continue making a difference.

Over the course of the coming months, we will explore other ways to engage and bring our community together to support those most vulnerable. Though our September 2020 event will not take place, we will not stop striving towards our mission – to intervene, empower and lead when and where women need us most.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Stay safe and well.
