Walk a Mile in Their Shoes – Get Involved
NEW THIS YEAR
New this year to Walk a Mile in Their Shoes is the WAM Market! We’re welcoming awesome women-led businesses for a WAM Market at our in-person Walk a Mile event on June 14, 2023. All are welcome to shop and support independent businesses from Hamilton and Halton. A portion of proceeds from sales of the WAM Market will go directly to supporting survivors through Walk a Mile in Their Shoes. Make sure to keep checking back as we add more vendors, and follow us on social to see who is joining us at the Market.
