Holy Cross Students Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Event Was A Thing Of Beauty

[***UPDATE: YWCA tells PTBOCanada that the total amount raised for the Holy Cross Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event is $2,383.25—surpassing their goal of $2,000! Awesome!!]

------------

This year's Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event for YWCA takes place May 27th, but in the build up to the big day many local schools—Holy Cross, Crestwood and Kenner—are hosting their own special events to raise money and awareness among students.

On a beautiful Tuesday (May 3rd), Holy Cross students and staff hosted a great day at their school to show their support for Walk a Mile and promote healthy relationships.

More than 50 staff and students participated, walking four laps on the school track in heels.

Eileen Kimmett was there and snapped these great photos...

There were also great tweets throughout the Walk a Mile event at the school...

The day was further proof that youth in our community—the next generation to make an impact—are amazing.
