Thank you for joining the YWCA of San Diego County at our annual Walk a Mile in Shoes last week! 550 individuals – walkers, teams, public officials, law enforcement, and advocates – made the event a tremendous success.
Together, we raised significant funding for the YWCA and our Becky’s House program as well as spread awareness about domestic violence. Your ongoing support is enabling us to break the cycle of abuse and transform lives. Thank you!
Visit the YWCA’s Flickr page to download photos from the event. Whether you sported heels or cheered on the sidelines, there are fun pictures to share with friends and colleagues.
Still have donations coming in? Never fear - our donation site will be up and running for a few more weeks so keep up your amazing work!
Congratulations to the 2014 Top Fundraisers. In our annual tradition, individuals and teams competed to raise the most funds and win one-of-a-kind trophies – in addition to full bragging rights!
Special thanks to our generous sponsors and community partners for making Walk a Mile in Her Shoes possible.
