WSU-Walk a Mile
Winona State University students will sponsor Winona Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Saturday, October 27th, in Winona.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a one-mile walk in red women's high heels to raise money and support the fight to end domestic violence and sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape. Males will walk in high heels, and females will walk and support the males as they struggle through the difficulty of walking in heels. Men and women are encouraged to attend as individuals or as teams of walkers.
To register, visit the Walk a Mile In Her Shoes Facebook page. The registration deadline is October 15th. Shoes are provided with registration.
Shoe pick-up and registration will start at 1:30 p.m. Participants will start at 3 p.m. at Windom Park on Huff and Broadway, walk to the Women's Resource Center where they will have the opportunity to have their photograph taken on the steps of the WRC, and then walk back to Windom Park.
The event will also includes topical speakers sharing their stories. Money raised will benefit the Women's Resource Center in Winona.
