Royal LePage First Contact Realty was the presenting sponsor of Walk A Mile in Her Shoes in Barrie, Ont. recently. The event was held in support of the Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie.
An enthusiastic group of men from Royal LePage raised $ 4,600 in pledges to become the top fundraising team. Broker/owner Dino Melchior was the top individual fundraiser.
“This event is important not only for raising funds for our local shelter but also to increase awareness and help to eliminate domestic violence. A very close friend of mine had her life tragically taken in 2011 by her ex-boyfriend,” says Melchior. “I wanted to walk in memory of Angela and to help prevent this kind of senseless tragedy from happening to other women and families.”
