Ryerson University Students and the Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign taking one step closer to a future without violence!

*just some of the Ryerson participants at the 2010 Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event*

The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign and Ryerson Students gathered over 60 strong at Victoria and Gould St before joining the 750 people at Yonge & Dundas Square. Walking a mile in her shoes to help create awareness and education around how men can become part of a  future  with no men’s violence against women (and girls and the LBGT community), Ryerson students lead by RWRC co-chair Miranda Hassell raised $1500 for the White Ribbon Campaign!

Ryerson White Ribbon co-chairs Jeff Perera and Miranda Hassell all PUMPed up!
