Since 2001, men, women, and their families around the world have joined the award-winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® domestic violence awareness march. It is a dramatic opportunity to raise awareness in the community about the serious causes, effects, and remediation to domestic violence. The Swinney Foundation works to help build strong families and even stronger communities by providing support to single parent families. And we know that women are most at risk for domestic violence when they are attempting to leave and immediately after leaving a relationship.
There is an old saying: "You can't understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." To get people listening, learning, and talking, the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® march is organized around men literally walking one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's an experience around which a lot of education, self-reflection, and change happens. It's impressive to see such a visually stunning public statement of listening, learning, allyship, and commitment. It's an engaging event that gets the community talking . And it is an experience that you will never forget.
Come join us in this informative but light-hearted, family-oriented event. And watch as men strut their stuff for a mile, in a variety of women shoes from flip flops to stilettos!
INCLUDED IN THE PRICE: A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes march t-shirt and snacks.
Team ticket purchases and sponsorships are available on Eventbrite.
