He’s travelled the world, promoting Calgary to studios and producers. He’s helped bring some of the biggest films and TV series to our city…but apparently, that’s not enough.
Now our fearless film commissioner, Luke Azevedo, is taking things up a notch, and “kicking up his heels” for a good cause.
They say it takes a real man to wear heels, and on September 20, Luke will be joining hundreds of real men taking part in this year’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, benefitting the YWCA of Calgary.
While there is a chance he may break an ankle, there’s a bigger hope that the money Luke raises will help break the cycle of family violence in our city.
There are two ways you can help support the cause and our walker. I would encourage you to visit Luke’s Walk a Mile page where you can donate to help support the YWCA of Calgary. http://support.ywcaofcalgary.com/goto/LukeAzevedo
I would also encourage you to join Calgary Economic Development on September 20 at Olympic Plaza, starting at noon as we cheer on Luke in his walk…and, of course, take pictures for Twitter.
Thank you for your support and hope to see you on September 20!
