Walk a Mile in Her Shoes


October 1, 2020

Walk a Mile in HER Shoes® is a symbolic march that gives men the opportunity to take a stand against the societal restrictions placed on women and specifically the issue of violence against women and children. Over the past 15 years, Walk a Mile has raised $1,065,732 for Gillian’s Place. This year Gillian’s Place is hoping to raise over $125,000. Kicking off this epic fundraiser in early September, four Ambassadors including Gabriel DeSantis, Walter Sendzik the Mayor of St. Catharines, Dan Stefels of Royal LePage and Cross Mundula one of the youth ambassadors stomped grapes with Niagara Wine Fest at the 13th Street Winery in St. Catharine’s to raise awareness for Walk a Mile. After a successful turn out last year, Gabe plans on beating his own winning record of $20,000 by walking the catwalk outdoors along the Grimsby waterfront trail October 17th 2020. Aiming to raise $50,000 with the support of his family, friends and staff.
