Kickass Canadians founder Walks In Her Shoes for CARE CanadaTuesday, February 28th, 2017 7:03 pm—News
On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, I completed CARE Canada’s Walk In Her Shoes challenge. The annual initiative aims to raise funds and awareness for the women and girls worldwide who walk an average of 10,000 steps each day to gather water, food, firewood and other basic necessities. For those females, walking that much leaves little time to get an education or earn an income, locking them into a cycle of poverty.
Thank you to my sponsors, who helped me raise $555 for CARE’s Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies initiative, and to the friends who joined me for the walk, including Kickass Canadian Gavin Thompson. You can read more about our walk here.
Since its inaugural year, Kickass Canadians has organized several CARE Canada fundraisers. I’m proud to partner with such an important charity that does great work toward ending poverty and elevating the status of women and girls.
