SAFE in Lenoir County, Inc.
Each year, an ever-increasing number of men, women and their families are joining the award-winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®. This event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in Lenoir, Greene, and Duplin Counties about the serious causes and effects of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence in their lifetime. SAFE will hold its 1st Annual Walk a Mile® Event on Saturday, September 30, 2017 to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. The event will be from 3p-5p at Pearson Park in Kinston. Mike Parker will participate in the mile-long march down Herritage Street, Atlantic Avenue, and Mitchell Street wearing bright red high-heeled shoes to show that Lenoir, Greene, and Duplin Counties do not tolerate Domestic or Sexual Violence. Proceeds from this Fundraising and Awareness walk will benefit SAFE in Lenoir County, Inc. in Lenoir, Greene, and Duplin Counties. http://www.walkamileinhershoes.org Licensed by Frank Baird and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®
