Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hope in Every Step?

Hope in Every Step (previously known as “Hope in high Heels”) is a walk to end violence against women and show unwavering support for those affected by domestic violence in our community. This inspiring event will take place on November 2nd in Burlington. By participating, you will not only show your support to survivors but also raise critical funds for Halton Women’s Place, the only women’s shelter in Halton. Walk with us as we honour survivors, celebrate their resilience, and take meaningful strides towards a future free of domestic violence.

Why the Rebrand?

Last year we announced that our most unique event, “Hope in High Heels,” got a fresh makeover and a brand new name: “Hope in Every Step”!

At “Hope in Every Step,” we stand united in our mission to be part of the solution in ending violence against women. Our new name better encompasses the diverse range of survivors we are walking for and more fully honours their experiences.
