Hope in High Heels charity walk

A small group of men showed their support for the pandemic charity walk Hope in High Heels as the majority of participants walked at home. Walk Week was September 19 to 25, 2021 with the final lap of the walk in pink shirts wearing pink high heels around the fountain at Nathan Phillips Square all for Halton Women's Place. The sign says Hope in High Heels, boys and men walking to end violence against women.

The walk is especially necessary as domestic violence has been much in the news with the murder of Gabby in the United States. As Covid restrictions have cancelled so many events the organization allowed for participants to walk with them in 2021 - from home and with registration fees waived.

From Hope's website, "This past year has been even tougher than most for women facing domestic violence. Woman abuse has become a pandemic within the COVID-19 pandemic as our clients have found themselves in lockdown after lockdown with their abusive partners, with no opportunity to reach out for help. HWP has worked hard to support our clients throughout this difficult time, and we continue to need the community’s support as Halton Region reopens, and our shelters begin to reach capacity once again. Here is your chance to show her you support her- that you want to help her. Walk with us! In order to keep everyone safe, we are bringing back Hope in High Heels From Home. You’ll be able to choose how YOU want to participate during Walk Week 2021!"

They did well despite Covid as they had a giant cheque ready in the amount of one million dollars for Halton's Women's Place.
