Our centre has served Central Alberta since 1984 and it is our mission to end family violence and poverty by supporting people in pursuit of a safer, healthier and more secure life. This is an exciting community fundraiser that sees over a hundred men slip into stiletto heels and strut their stuff in style for a mile; raising eyebrows and funds for the Outreach Centre programs. Our event is expanding this year with a pancake breakfast as well as a BBQ lunch, live entertainment, and family fun. We will have several radio stations on location as well as numerous other local media outlets, and hundreds of spectators, volunteers, friends, and families.
