BENEFITING: YWCA OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2016
As part of this community we are also trying to help bring awareness to this issue that affects so many! We hope that by joining this great and noble organization we can together make a difference.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Step up and take a stand against this critical community issue at the 9th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. Help end domestic violence and raise funds for the transformational Becky’s House® domestic violence programs!
