Walk a Mile

Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort staff “Walk a mile in her shoes”

September 13, 2013

Some very brave Sunshine Village male staff donned high heel shoes in downtown Banff today in support of the Banff YWCA WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES®.

The annual fundraiser, which raises money to support YWCA initiatives focused on breaking the cycle of domestic violence, encourages male participants to strap on a pair of high heels and walk down the 100 and 200 blocks of Banff Avenue.  

Demitri Galaxidas and Steve Wright from the accounting department at Sunshine Village, calling themselves the Sunshine Suzie’s, collectively raised funds in preparation for today’s walk.

The event is part of a worldwide movement to raise awareness of domestic violence to help keep women and children safe.

The Banff YWCA WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® has raised more than $185,000 in the past four years. In total, 600 men have stood up and said "not in my community."
