Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
April 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Safenet Services for its 8th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event in conjunction with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The traditional $25 registration fee has been waived this year. Registration is free with a donation.
The one mile walk will begin at 10 a.m. at Gazebo Park following a brief ceremony. The event focuses on bringing men into the conversation but is open to everyone, including dogs.
The first 150 to preregister online will receive a free walk t-shirt. The event will also feature a Pet Parade and Red Shoe Runway Competition back this year. Awards will be given to “Best Dressed”, “Team That Raised the Most Money”, “Team With The Most Walkers”, and “College/High School Group With Most Walkers”. Following the walk, all participants will be invited to celebrate with a free meal – hotdogs, chips, and drink – and music.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an award winning, nation-wide walk-a-thon in which participants are encouraged to literally walk one mile in women’s shoes. It is a playful opportunity to raise awareness in the community about the serious causes and effects of violence against women. Participants are encouraged to wear red and teal to help raise awareness of Sexual Assault.
