On Friday 1st of September 2017, staff from Harcourts – The Property People, along with members from Harcourts offices throughout Australia, their family, friends and the greater community, will walk down a different path and once again join forces with White Ribbon Australia to take a stand against domestic violence.
In 2016, over 800 Harcourts staff, family, friends and supporters across Australia “walked a mile” in women’s heels to show solidarity and bring attention to the national tragedy that is violence against women. Our event set a new White Ribbon record for community fundraising, and this year we hope to set a new milestone for this worthy charity.
This year’s “Walk a Mile in Their Shoes” will see all participants encouraged to wear heels (men and women) to walk along a designated public route in Campbelltown (route to be confirmed). Last year, our office raised a whopping $14,500 and we hope to again raise close-to, or in excess of this amount.
All Harcourts offices nationwide hope to raise $100,000 to help White Ribbon Australia continue their awesome work.
100% of funds raised will be donated to White Ribbon’s “Breaking the Silence” programme in primary and secondary schools across Australia, aimed at creating generational change in attitudes toward violence.
It’s $25 to enter the walk, or feel free to donate what you can.
