High Heel Dash -- Malaysia's First Ever High Heel Run! (If i wear wedges does it count?!?) Hi!  I'm Nadine Ann Thomas. For 5 years now I have worked with many women's organizations on various issues including abuse, gender discrimination and equality, bullying and women-related cancer.  One of the most tragic situations a woman or a mother can be put through in her lifetime is to be homeless, helpless and powerless. When a woman's basic human right is robbed from her and she is subjected to physical abuse or worse still, mental abuse; that leaves no mark, yet lasts a lifetime. I believe it is my duty and perhaps you will feel it is also yours, to uplift, inspire and help care for those who need mending. Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) is raising funds to refurbish safe homes that have been hidden and designated for women and children who need protection, shelter, and comfort. With a growing number of over 300 occupants that include women and children, WAO needs to expand and refurbish to accommodate and help more women and children in need. Your donations will be used to buy the basics, beds, cupboards, mattresses and more. Join me in helping women and children in need. Help them to heal and rebuild.  Have a wonderful day ahead and I thank you in advance for your support. :D  Love,Nadine Miss Universe Malaysia 2010 | DJ | Host

The issues of female representation and empowerment are very important to those of us organizing THE HIGH HEEL DASH. We are a diverse female-led team with varying levels of fondness for heels (I personally only wear high heels for wedding dinners/ special events as I am more of a sneaker or flip-flop type of girl. Hats-off to those who can wear it on a daily basis) and do know that we have considered the issues of injury and representation in great detail before launching the event. Since its inception in Amsterdam, high heel runs have enjoyed a positive track record for fundraising and awareness-raising around the world – usually in the interest of women-related issues such as breast cancer. These runs embrace high heels not as a symbol for the event itself but as a rallying point for the real deal: educational talks and awareness-raising. We feel that the High Heel Dash is a good rallying point for bringing more like-minded women together for precisely such activities. In the case of Malaysia, where only 1 in 2 working-age women are active in the labour force, we want to celebrate modern working women who are asked to juggle multiple roles in life. Our surveys within and without the team suggest that many women, some of whose working experience clock over a decade, are fully comfortable with the idea of being a professional who also happens to love fashion and heels. These women constantly deal with very important questions, and have accepted that they enjoy complicating the story of the modern feminist. As with all sports, we are aware of there being a risk to injury for this event. Based on our research of former high heel runs, we feel that 50 meters is a reasonably safe distance for our participants. All dashers will be well-informed of the risks involved and we aim to have only participants who give their informed consent to be a part of this event. Let us all come together for a day - to just celebrate how much women have achieved over the decades. This is not about a pair of shoe, it is about the women who wore them. Our event is in support of WAO - to help them create a more comfortable environment for women who are seeking refuge and a second chance in life. Every ringgit counts in creating that safe space for them. Thank you.

As woman of this era being successful in the corporate, mother of two and happily married with loved ones around sure sounds like a great life...yes indeed..I am :) however there are some people out there may not be so fortunate and lucky and they need the support from us.. Let us do our part and contribute :) Why pledge a donation?You'll help provide a safe space for abused women to heal. Each RM100 will contribute to more beds, cupboards and other furniture for a growing number of more than 300 women and their children seeking refuge.WAO has been providing shelter to abused women and children for 33 years; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The population of women seeking help from WAO has increased over the years. As the shelter is aging due to wear and tear in times of high occupancy, WAO needs aid in renovating the shelter to meet the need for more beds and to maximize the current space in order to support the increased capacity.I am supporting this initiative, and you can too - when you pledge a donation for me for The High Heel Dash! Your donation will make a significant impact on the maintenance of the shelter and ensures a comfortable living space for the women in need.

Women's Aid Organisation (WAO)

Hello there! Thank you for dropping by my fundraising page. The main motivation for me to set up this page is because of the major female influencers in my life such as my grandmother, my mother and my sisters. My grandmother was my main caretaker when I was younger and she took good care of us (My siblings and I) when our parents are off to work. She always tell us to be responsible when we grow older and be a good example to others. She didn't wear high heels when she was working as a wet market vendor because stilettos to her are reserved for higher income individuals. My mother on the other hand wore stilettos to work when we were younger, my father and herself worked really hard to provide shelter and food for us. I'm really fortunate to be where I am today because of them. She still wear stilettos to work not because of status, it's because they served as a reminder of how far she has achieved for herself and her family. She always told me to be strong and keep a clear mind. I'm the eldest in my family but I'd to think that my sisters were the ones guiding and encourage me to be myself. Even though we have our differences in the past but they continuously impress me with their maturity and wisdom which motivates me to strive as a better role model.I am really grateful for what these women has done in my life and I hate to see men abuse women to showcase their authority. Violence is not the way to resolve anything and women deserves the rights for respect from men because they're our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and partners. These donations you've made will directly contribute to Women's Aid Organization efforts to refurbish their shelters for abused women in Malaysia. I urge for you to donate for the well being of these women suffered from domestic violence. Since I'm not allowed to race, I'd like to give away my ticket to a female friend for a chance to win a pair of tickets to London at the High Heel Dash.Thank you for reading my story and supporting Women's Aid Organization in Malaysia!Sincerely,Hanlim

The funds for this will go towards Women's Aid Organisation(WAO) to help them give refuge to abuse victims. WAO is working with The High Heel Dash and if I can raise RM 300, I get to race at The High Heel Dash for free. The High Heel Dash is the first ever high heel race in Malaysia and if I win the race, I get free flights to London. Prizes aside, this is a just a fun way to show your support for a more serious cause - women empowerment. Anyone active on social media will be aware of the issues women face today. However subtle; getting inappropriate comments on your looks, or damaging; such as feeling unsafe to be alone at night, I believe no woman deserves to be treated that way. If you feel the same way, support my page or create your own page for some fundraising. :)

Ironically I don't wear high heels as I have been liberated from the bondage of wanting to look taller and sexy at the expense of my dear feet/toes/ankles/legs. However, I do support the High Heel Dash 2015, which is making its inaugural appearance in Malaysia in aid of Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) on 23.05.2015, at the Square, Publica, Kuala Lumpur. You don't have to join the High Heel Dash if you are not wearing high heels or if you are of the opposite gender.  You can just spread the words, telling your friends and relatives that High Heel Dash is here to create awareness about women, their rights, their responsibilities, their challenges, their plight.   Do your part. Participate by donating your hard earned money for a good cause! Women are to be protected, cherished, appreciated and not tortured, victimised nor suffered (esp. the pinch in the feet by ill fitting high heels!)Just click the following link if you want to find out more about WAO:www.wao.org.my Women's Aid Organisation Malaysia are Malaysian women against violence against women, who provide shelter, counselling, support and advocate for law reform.Your kind attention and contribution is much appreciated and remembered!  With love,Ng Sow Han
