THE STORY:

EVENT DATE: Sunday JUNE 28, 2015 at Children's Beach 

10:00AM registration, 10:30 AM walk

 

“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”

 

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an event designed to raise awareness about violence against women by asking men and boys to literally walk a mile in women’s shoes – high heeled shoes. It’s not easy to walk in these shoes, but it’s fun and will help the Nantucket community think and talk about some difficult issues: gender relations and men’s sexual violence against women.

 

Men have the option of walking solo, or with a team (e.g., friends, family, co-workers, teammates, etc.). Each walker will be required to pay a $20 registration fee and raise at least $100 to walk, although higher fundraising goals are strongly encouraged! Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Nantucket is organized by A Safe Place, Inc. and all of the proceeds from the walk will go directly to A Safe Place.

 

Questions? Feel free to contact A Safe Place by phone (508-228-0561) or e-mail prevention@asafeplacenantucket.org 

 

Please note: 

  • Men and boys of all ages are welcome - walk solo or with a team.
  • Participants MUST register by June 1st to ensure a t-shirt in their size.
  • Men are responsible for finding their own pair of high heeled shoes. Many online retailers sell large sized high heel shoes. Amazon has a variety of options (up to a size 16 women's), including these red heels.
