Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. Each year an ever- increasing number of men, women, and families are joining this award-winning walk as a unique way to raise awareness in their communities about the serious causes, effects, and remediation to domestic and sexual violence.
In this walk we ask men to literally put themselves in women’s shoes to raise awareness and show their support against gender violence. Men walk one mile in high heels for the cause.
Men, women, and children are welcome to participate in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®. Although wearing high heels is encouraged, it is not a requirement to participate. Participants can wear their own high heel shoes, purchase high heel shoes at the event, or just wear their own normal walking shoes. There will be craft items available for those who want to decorate their shoes before the walk. Friendly spectators and supporters of the event are always welcome.
Proceeds from the walk will benefit the Alexandra House.
