Register for Walk A Mile in Their Shoes
Walk A Mile in Their Shoes is an annual fundraising event for people of all ages, gender identities and abilities to increase awareness of the impacts of gender-based violence, while raising much-needed funds to support YWCA Cambridge’s GBV prevention work.
We’re on a mission to not only end gender-based violence, but prevent it before it can happen. That’s why we work tirelessly to provide free, community-based violence prevention programming to youth across Cambridge, North Dumfries and beyond.
Mark your calendars and walk in solidarity with survivors of violence. Together we have the ability to make our community a safer space for all and put an end to gender-based violence.

Why We Walk
Every day, women, girls and gender-diverse individuals face violence – in their homes, on the streets, in public places and in private. Worse, the severity of the violence rose during the pandemic and still hasn’t come back down. In fact, there were 30 femicides in 30 weeks from November 26 to June 30 of this year, according to Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses (OAITH)
At YWCA Cambridge, we’re on a mission to not only end gender-based violence, but prevent it before it can happen. That’s why we work tirelessly to provide free, community-based violence prevention programming to youth across Cambridge, North Dumfries and beyond.
However, demand continues to outpace our capacity to deliver programming and our waitlists keep growing.
We rely on the support of people like you to continue this work and this year, we’re hoping to raise enough funds to expand it and eliminate the long waitlists. So please join us this year – gather your friends, families and colleagues and register as a fundraising team. Help us to amplify the calls to end gender-based violence and raise vital funds to support local prevention efforts!
Our community is struggling but YOU can help.
Together, we will make a difference
Let's Walk together again, Cambridge!
