Green Haven Shelter for Women is ramping up for their annual Walk This Way to Open Doors for Women fundraiser. This event underscores the critical importance of supporting survivors of violence and abuse, and aims to raise vital funds to keep doors open for victims, providing refuge, healing, and hope to those in need.

Participants and their families can look forward to sign-making stations, an empowering craft station for kids, and donated food and drinks. The event kicks off with an easy-going warm-up activity to get everyone in the spirit before marching along Couchiching Beach Park as a symbol of their collective commitment to ending gender-based violence.

The organization has announced some enticing prizes donated by the community for those who go the extra mile to raise funds for this important cause including Apple Athletic Floater Mats, The Kitchen Shop gifts, Northern Roots gift cards, Orillia Perinatal Massage, and more.

The event is a 2000-step walk along the water front, with a warm up activity, opportunities to advocate for and empower survivors, enjoy food and drinks, win prizes, and so much more.
