On Thursday June 18, the MSU will be partaking in the 6th annual, Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event, put on by the YWCA Hamilton.
The purpose of Walk a Mile is to raise funds for YWCA Hamilton’s Transitional Living Program and to raise awareness on women’s poverty and homelessness, and violence against women.
Participants of the event will strut and stumble through Gore Park, inevitably raising some eyebrows and awareness on the cause. The YWCA needs your help to educate fellow Hamiltonians about issues affecting women in our community.
The YWCA visited McMaster just last week so that the MSU team can try on their shiny red heels. Check out some of the photos from the photo shoot below.
If you enjoyed those, you should check out the video the MSU Board put together to challenge others to walk the walk down Gore Park next week.
Katelyn Wuilleme, Development Coordinator for Special Events and Community Fundraising at the YWCA, also came on on the morningfile to talk a bit more about Walk A Mile In Her Shoes. To hear from her why you should get involved, check out the sound clip below.
