In August 2019, Harcourts staff, family, friends, and other supporters across Australia will once again walk down a different path, joining forces with White Ribbon Australia to take a stand against violence.

Our 7th annual “Walk a Mile in Their Shoes” is an education and fundraising campaign led by the Harcourts Foundation in conjunction with Harcourts Real Estate to increase public awareness of the impact of violence against women in Australia. The event will take place in Avoca Beach, NSW (and across Australia) on Friday 30th August, with all participants encouraged to wear heels and “walk a mile” (actually, around a kilometre) along a designated public route to show solidarity and draw attention to the cause. To date, this event has raised over $500,000 for White Ribbon nationally.

All proceeds from this campaign will be donated to White Ribbon’s “Breaking the Silence” program in primary and secondary schools across Australia, aimed at creating generational change in attitudes toward violence.

The link to participate or donate will be launched in early July.

Event Price: $25.00
