Since 2010, Royal LePage ProAlliance through the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has worked tirelessly to raise funds in support of Three Oaks Foundation through many events including Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®. This year, Three Oaks is proud to host our very own Walk A Mile In Her Shoes.
For the first time, the licence and rights to Walk A Mile In Her Shoes belongs to Three Oaks. For the first time, we are organizing and managing the entire event. Although we always knew that there was a dedication from Royal LePage ProAlliance agents and staff to work with and support this event, for the first we are finding out just how much time and effort went in to it.
We want to build on the past 6 years and come out stronger than ever. We need the help of our community to do so. We need men to wear the shoes and walk. We need people to sponsor them. We need people to come and cheer them on. We need people to come spend the day with us and enjoy the other events we have planned. We need people to show the women and children in our communities that they matter and you say so. We need you!
As the only shelter in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties mandated and funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services to provide shelter and programs for women and children fleeing their homes dues to domestic violence, Three Oaks relies on the support of our community each and every day to help us make this happen.
In the words of Margaret Meade:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
