What is Walk in Her Shoes?
Walk in Her Shoes is a flexible workplace challenge designed to motivate your staff and raise funds for CARE Australia.
Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6km every day to collect clean water. By walking in their shoes, you can raise funds to help provide water closer to home, meaning girls can go to school and women can earn an income instead of walking hours a day to collect water.
This is a flexible challenge you can do in your own time between 16-29 October 2017. When you sign up your business, each team member can choose their own challenge to suit their ability – walk or run between 10km and 150km, and take the challenge over a day, a week or a fortnight.
Why take the challenge?
- Motivate staff through a fun, meaningful activity
- Support the Sustainable Development Goals
- Register multiple departmental teams for some healthy competition
- Grow your corporate social responsibility
- Raise funds for women and girls in developing countries
- It’s free to take part and all staff will receive a free pedometer!
What do I need to do?
Taking part is easy – Sign up your workplace, ask your family and friends to sponsor you, then walk or run your chosen distance!
