More than 80 participants joined Royal LePage Gardiner Realty in Fredericton, N.B. at the company’s second annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. More than $ 18,000 was raised for their efforts as they took to the streets in bright red heels to raise awareness about sexualized violence against women.
The funds support the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, 100 per cent of which will be donated to local women’s shelter Women in Transition House. The organizing committee, led by Glenis Mahaney, is setting its sights on a $ 25,000 goal for next year’s event.
Special guests included Steve Horsman, who is Member of the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly; Bob Powell, mayor of Oromocto; and local firefighters, who paired their high heels with full gear and led the men on their mile-long walk.
“Royal LePage Gardiner Realty has been giving back to the community since 1970 and we’re proud to continue this tradition with this annual walk,” says broker/owner Lincoln Thompson.
