Registration Is Open for Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®
Standing Up to Sexual Violence
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® was first created in 2001 by Frank Baird, and what once was a small group of men meandering around a park has since grown into a world-wide movement. Bringing together tens of thousands of men each year, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® generates millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.
Following the saying “you can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes,” Walk a Mile has men do this. Donning a pair of high heels and a positive attitude, the men are then tasked to walk an entire mile to bring awareness and education to these causes.
Join Peace House at Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®
Starting in 2013, Peace House has sponsored Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in Park City, gathering support from the local men in the community, including members of the police force, swat team and fire department. This year we’re adding in four- and eight-man teams, as well as team prizes and peer-2-peer fundraising. Categories for prizes this year include top fundraising individual and team, tallest heel height, best costume, best strut and more!
First, you walk the walk, and then you talk the talk! Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a great way to get the community talking about sexualized violence, and this is critical for prevention and recovery. Help us shed light on these ugly truths as we search for ways to prevent men’s sexualized violence against women, and if it’s already happening, how we can continue to help women recover and heal.
Walk a Mile takes place in Park City on August 26, 2018 at 10 AM. Registration is now open, and costs $25 per person.
