In August 2018, Harcourts staff, family, friends, and supporters across Australia will once again walk down a different path, joining forces with White Ribbon Australia to take a stand against violence.

Our sixth 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 Brisbane (and across Australia) on Friday 31st 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, whilst working towards our goal of raising $100,000 for White Ribbon nationally.

All proceeds from this campaign 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.

Event Price: $25
