Believing in women empowerment, I’ve signed up to The High Heel Dash – Malaysia First High Heel Race happening this May 23rd 2015 at The Square, Publika in support of women, and all women entrepreneurs. It will be a chic all-day event that brings together hundreds of dashers for 50m of fun competition. Live entertainment, great food, fabulous women-centric businesses, inspiring talks and activities, plus fabulous prizes are in store to make this a dashing affair.
Women entrepreneurs make up one-third of all entrepreneurs worldwide. There ladies lead the way for women in other sectors to shatter their ceilings.

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.
The Women’s Aid Organisation 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.
The High Heel Dash is supporting this initiative, and you can too - when you become a fundraiser to join the Dash! The funds you raise will make a significant impact on the maintenance of the shelter and ensures a comfortable living space for the women in need.
