Real estate agents and a huge group of supporters across Australia rallied together on Friday 8 May and walked a mile in high heels to help raise awareness of the issue of violence against women.
The Harcourts Foundation in conjunction with White Ribbon Australia held walks across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia to shed light on an issue that affects up to 1 in 5 Australian women.
The Harcourts Foundation National Coordinator Julia Eyles said she was moved that so many people showed their support, with almost eight hundred walkers joining the team on the day across Australia.
“This is an issue we are all very passionate about, it was so good to see that after five months of planning, so many chose to show their support and walk with us to shed light on an issue that affects so many”, said Mrs Eyles.
More than $100,000 has been raised so far nationally and counting, with donations being accepted until the end of May.
The event now holds White Ribbon Australia’s record for the highest community fundraising activity to date.
The walks took place across the country at a crucial time, with 34 Australian women having lost their lives to domestic violence already this year, according to White Ribbon.
Several notable ambassadors took part in the walk nationally, including Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty in Melbourne, whom has been personally affected by domestic violence.
All proceeds raised through this campaign will be donated to White Ribbon’s Break the Silence programme in primary and secondary schools across Australia aimed at changing generational attitudes toward violence.
