Mayor Soboloweski tried out his shoes for Walk A Mile In Her Shoes at the Feb. 14th town council meeting during a presentation by the Bonnyville Community Support Program, a partnership between Bonnyville and District FCSS and the Dr. Margaret Savage Crisis Centre. Walk a Mile In Her Shoes is happening in Bonnyville on Feb. 26th at the Pontiacs home game at 2:00.
Brenda Parsons, a support worker with the program, stated that the event is a world wide event. “Even though on the surface, it seems like a light hearted event with a lot of laughs, this event brings to the public eye, the hidden issue of family violence.” Candina Wosminity, another Community Support worker for Bonnyville stated that since the program started in Bonnyville last March, they have served 45 women and 13 men during that time.
For those who would like to take part in the walk, call the Community Support Program at 780-826-2656. And for those of you, who would like to cheer these brave men on, come down to the Pontiacs game on the 26th!
