Desantis Homes’ Walk a Mile in HER Shoes 2023: A Stride Towards Success for Gillian’s Place


 This event goes beyond fundraising and raising awareness. The team at DeSantis Homes puts emphasis on elevating the voices of survivors and striving to prevent gender-based violence from happening. Continually backing initiatives that uplift women and children in our community, Gillians Place empowers the creation of a stronger, safer, and more inclusive future. In the last 4 years of participating in #WAM, the DeSantis Homes team has raised a total of $281,000.00. 

In a riveting display of community support, Desantis Homes hosted its highly anticipated “Walk a Mile in HER Shoes” fundraiser on October 13th, 2023.  

This event, which served as the official kickoff, paving the way for a triumphant day at the Pen Centre on October 14th. As the sun shined on a beautiful day in Grimsby, the Desantis Homes team alongside Grimsby councilors and local supporters, slipped on their heels and walked behind Gillian’s Place. The walk culminated in a heartfelt moment as a symbolic giant cheque of $30,000.00 was graciously presented to Gillian’s Place.
