Over 400 participants came together at City Hall to raise awareness and funds to help women who have been affected by violence and homelessness in our community. This is the largest and most successful Walk a Mile in Her Shoes to date, raising an incredible $100,000!!! Proceeds will support the many YWCA Hamilton programs and services aimed at providing opportunities for women, girls, and their families in need.
 
The volumes of community support, social media promotion, media coverage, generosity, enthusiasm, passion, and positive feedback has been overwhelming to say the least. Thank you to everyone who stepped up, taking a stand against homelessness and violence against women. 
 
Congratulations once again to our award winners:
 
Most Spirited Team: Hamilton Police Service
Top Individual Fundraiser: James Monaghan
Top Individual Fundraiser on a Team: Amy Back
Top Fundraising Team: Hamilton Photographers Rock
