Thank you for your interest in CARE's Walk In Her Shoes event. Unfortunately, this year's event in Vancouver has been cancelled in support of balancing health risks with social risks in light of covid-19 outbreaks in BC.

UPDATE: CARE Canada cancels public Walk In Her Shoes gathering on International Women’s Day in favour of a virtual event

In lieu of walking 10,000 steps, the Vancouver Council for CARE Canada (VCCC), an 85 person strong volunteer group dedicated to supporting women, girls, families, and entire communities around the globe, invite citizens to support this very worthwhile cause by making a donation. If safe to do so, walk 10,000 steps locally, take photos, and post on social media tagging @carecanada and using the hashtags #WalkInHerShoes, #VancouverWalks, #IWD2020.

Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6 km every day to collect clean water.

By walking in their shoes, you can raise funds to help provide water closer to home, meaning girls can go to school and women can earn an income instead of walking hours a day to collect water.

Join CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes campaign, walk up to 10,000 steps in solidarity with women and girls around the world, and the funds you raise will help fight poverty and social injustice.
