Walk In Her Shoes is a personal walking challenge that raises funds for CARE Canada.
In many developing countries, women and girls walk more than 8,000 steps each day to access food, water and health care for their family, leaving little time for education or paid work. CARE is working to change that, and you can too - when you Walk In Her Shoes!

- Empower women and girls
Walk in solidarity with women and girls around the world, so that one day, they won’t have to!
New for 2014!
In its fourth year, Walk In Her Shoes is more virtual than ever so that funds raised can go further to helping the women and girls in CARE’s programs.
- No registration fee
Sign up and fundraise for free this year. If you would like to show off why you’re walking, you will have the option to purchase a CARE t-shirt from our Café Press store. If you would like to use a pedometer to track your steps, there are many free apps for your phone or you can purchase a pedometer at your local running store.
- Walk when you like for as long as you like
While women and girls around the world walk an average of 8,000 steps a day, you don’t have to. What’s important is that you make your pledge and take the first step towards making a difference! This year, walk whenever you like for as far as you like. Walk with a group of friends in March, walk on your own in June. Set your own goal – 8,000 steps in one day; 4,000 steps in two days; or 40,000 steps in a week. You decide how to fulfill your pledge!
No matter when you walk, or how long you walk, every dollar you raise will go to supporting CARE’s vital programs empowering women and girls to lift their communities out of poverty.
