Aperçu

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a pledge based fundraising and public awareness campaign that sees participants literally walk a mile in high heelss to raise community awareness around issues of sexualized violence against women. This event creates an atmosphere of openness and fun that helps encourage dialogue around a subject that can often be difficult to talk about while encouraging men in our communities to be allies in the fight against sexual violence.

The funds and awareness generated through this campaign ensure that victims of trauma and abuse have access to the counseling and support services they need, including the Sexual Violence Treatment Program and the Child Abuse Program.
