Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are friends and family able to walk with me on the Walk a Mile walk?
A: All family members, female partners and friends are encouraged to walk on the sidelines to support you in your walk.
Q: I would like to walk but I am unable to walk in the red heels. Can I still participate?
A: Any man who cannot walk in the heels but would like to participate is encouraged to walk in a comfortable pair of shoes and carry a pair of red heels with him on the walk.
Q: Where do I go when I arrive to the Walk a Mile event?
A: When you arrive at the Downtown Chatham Centre Mall (in front of Sears) you will be greeted by Walk a Mile volunteers who will direct you to the Registration Table. This is where you will hand in your Registration/Waiver Form and Pledge Sheet(s). You will be handed 2 tickets – one is for the prize draw box and the other will be placed in the shoe box from which you get your red heels. Please be sure to put your name on each ticket. From there you will be directed to the Shoe Table (identified by shoe sizes) where you will put the prize tickets in the prize box, collect your red shoes, hand the Volunteer your shoe ticket and place your street shoes in the shoe box. After the “Walk” return your red shoes to the “Shoe Table” and receive your street shoes.
You are now ready to try on those shiny red heels, warm up and get ready to Walk a Mile!
