Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. The annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event gives men the opportunity to help raise awareness about violence against women by walking one mile around the Cleveland Warehouse District wearing women’s high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men's sexualized violence against women. Participants are encouraged to collect donations to help raise critical funds for Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center's programs reaching over 25,000 individuals in Cuyahoga County each year. Awards will be given to the highest fundraising individual and team and to the individual or team with the most creative support sign to be held during the walk. All supporters (men or women) must be 21-years of age or older to participate in the walk. Form a team and enjoy music, contests, refreshments and an after party celebration at Dive Bar!
