Dear walkers, champions, volunteers, donors and community partners,

 YWCA Muskoka would like to thank the 2020 Walk A Mile Champions

 
 
 

  

 

This past August, we put an urgent request out for funds to provide financial support to women and children who are currently experiencing or have already fled from domestic violence. Times of crisis and financial hardship exacerbate domestic violence and this is exactly what has happened since the pandemic began. 

Though we didn’t gather in person this year to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, you’ve gone the extra mile. 

Together, we surpassed our fundraising goal and raised over $15,000. 
This money is already going directly to women and their families, many of whom are leaving domestic violence and experiencing increased stress of job loss or insecurity, mental health concerns, transportation, internet access, challenges to caregiving and childcare constraints. 

Thank you for stepping up.

Next year, we hope to build on the momentum and growth Walk a Mile in Her Shoes has seen over the past five years. Keep your eyes open for details about the 2021 walk!

With much love and best wishes for your health and safety,
