Interim Place's 7th Annual Steps to End Violence Against Women Walk 

Date: Sunday August 26th, 2018

Time: 9:30am Registration

Location: J.C. Saddington Park, 53 Lake St., Port Credit


The walk will begin at J.C. Saddington Park, in Port Credit, with a vigil for the 36 women that have lost their lives in Peel community due to gender-based violence in the past 10 years. This will include the names of 8 more women since last year's walk. Participants will make their way to the Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens, where the City of Mississauga has placed a Memorial Garden, at the site of Interim Place’s original safe haven, which was established in 1981. At the Memorial Garden, we will remember the over 41,000 women and children that have accessed our services in the past 35 years. We will also honour and remember the 1,221 Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women across Canada.

Your participation is reaffirming for the women and children we serve.  It lets them know that people in their community truly care about the steps they are taking to live a life free of violence and for that, we sincerely appreciate your involvement.

 

Why We Walk

We walk to:
