Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Fundraiser for The Laurel Center

Walk a Mile event poster 2017Join The Laurel Center Intervention for Domestic and Sexual Violence for the Second Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence on April 8, 2017.

The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in the community about the serious causes, effects and remediation to men’s sexualized violence against women. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes.

Everyone is encouraged to walk – men, women, students, and children. Walk in heels, walk in flats, or walk with a sign. No matter which way you choose to walk; walk with a purpose.

The after-party and awards ceremony will be held at Brewbaker’s Restaurant immediately following the walk.
