As a multi-service organization, YWCA Cambridge works in a number of ways with all kinds of community members: from the women in our Small Steps to Success Program to the grade school students in our Roots of Empathy programs to our many girls programs, we’re eager to involve everyone in our mission to create a more equal and tolerant community. Social justice is an issue which affects everyone: and you see, its really not an equal community if everyone isn’t on board. When you step up to Walk a Mile, you not only help to support our programs financially but act as an advocate forwhat we do and help us spread our message!

We provide the shoes. Once you register with your shoe size, get in touch with us to arrange early pick up by calling 519-267-6444 or sending us a message. It's always easier to get pledges when you can show off a little plus the early practice helps!

Here are a few tips to make the walk pain free:

  • Remember to wear thin socks
  • Wear bandaids on your heels to prevent blisters
  • Try wrapping an elastic band around your shoes to keep them from slipping
  • Practice, practice, practice
  • Get a friend to join you, and challenge each other!
  • Take your time, walk confidently and most importantly: HAVE FUN!

Last year's walk included FREE lunch and foot massages as well as great pictures from Emily Beatty Imagery ! There will be tons of great activities for the whole family again next year, so bring them along. Wear company shirts the day of the event and build your brand: we’ll help by spreading the word through our social media, too!

Proceeds help us to meet the increasing demand for our programs such as Small Steps to Success, Roots of Empathy and our Girls' Programs. Learn more about who we are.
