BENEFITING: YWCA OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY

EVENT: Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2013!

EVENT DATE: Oct 17, 2013

Wendy Hoier

THE STORY:

There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." And that is exactly what the YWCA of San Diego County’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event asks the San Diego community to do. This fundraising event asks men (and women and children) to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes as a powerful symbol of their commitment to putting an end to domestic violence. It's not easy, but it's fun and it raises critical funding for the YWCA’s Becky’s House® Domestic Violence Program.

On October 17th 2013, we invite you to join hundreds of men, women and children in putting on a pair of pumps and walking for a mile through the streets of downtown San Diego. This event represents a fun, light-hearted way to build awareness of the prevalence of domestic violence and its negative impact on the community, while raising critical funds for the YWCA of San Diego County's Becky's House® Domestic Violence Program.

The Basics:

When? Thursday, October 17, 2013 

Registration at 5pm, Walk at 6pm, Post Event Party from 7pm at the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center.

Where? ML King Promenade Park (Cnr 4th Ave & K St, Downtown San Diego)

Why? Because it is going to take each and every member of our community to change the way we view domestic violence and stop it. This event raises much-needed funding for the YWCA's Becky's House® Domestic Violence Program. All of the services provided by Becky's House® support the individual's journey from victim to survivor to achiever. The program includes a 30-60 day domestic violence emergency shelter, a 24-hour emergency hotline, and four transitional housing programs for survivors of domestic violence and their families. Becky's House® serves more than 500 women and children, and receives nearly 2,500 hotline calls each year!

How critical is the issue of domestic violence to the safety of our friends and neighbors?

Every 9 seconds in the U.S. a woman is assaulted or beaten

5.5 million children are exposed to domestic violence

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined

The total cost of domestic violence in the U.S. exceeds 5.8 billion dollars annually

1 in 4 women is a victim of domestic violence

Every year, the YWCA of San Diego County helps over 5,700 individuals overcome domestic violence and homelessness

Great cause, Diane! I continue to proudly serve, as I have for 16 years, on the board of directors for WomenShelter of Long Beach. Hope your event was a big success! Tonight is our annual Candlelight Walk Against Domestic Violence to be held in downtown Long Beach. Keep up the good work because these women need all we can do for them and we all need to focus more attention on ending the vicious cycle of domestic violence. 4 years ago
