WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES

WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27

Walk A Mile in Her Shoes is a fun one mile walk and silent auction at NoDa Brewery on August 27, 2016. The best part about the walk? All walkers will be wearing high heels. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about rape and gender violence in the community. All proceeds from the event will be benefiting Safe Alliance. Safe Alliance provides a continuum of critical crisis services to those victimized by domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse. Services include a 24-hour crisis line, the 80-bed Clyde & Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter, safety planning services, hospital accompaniment and legal representation. Safe Alliance assists over 10,000 people annually in Mecklenburg County and reaches an even greater number of people through community education, prevention programs and institutional advocacy.
