In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the YWCA South Hampton Roads will host the 3rd Annual Walk-A-Mile In Her Shoes men’s walk to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender-based violence against women. The event will take place during Sexual Assault Awareness Month on Thursday, April 17, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Downtown Norfolk at the World Trade Center (WTC).
The inaugural Walk-A-Mile In Her Shoes was launched in 2011 as a community event where men don high-heeled shoes and walk alongside other advocates in a light-hearted attempt to increase awareness about sexual violence against women. Men, women, and families are encouraged to participate - even if not wearing heels. 100% of funds raised will benefit the YWCA South Hampton Roads' sexual assault support services and counseling center.
