It’s not just a women’s issue!
WIN’s fifth annual walk will take place on Friday, May 5, 2017 and, again, we need your help! We’re looking for men to don a pair of bright red high heels and walk just 6 blocks along Main Street in Downtown Chambersburg.
Register below as an individual walker or as a team of up to 4 walkers. Registration fee includes a Walk a Mile t-shirt and the use of high-heels during the walk.
Don’t forget to get sponsors!
A big part of this event is getting sponsors to donate to your walk! Tell others that you are walking to raise awareness about sexual violence and all the money raised will go to support Women In Need’s programs and services to help victims.
Use the Sponsor page to get friends, family, and co-workers to pledge money. Set a personal goal for how much you want to raise and try to reach your goal!
Collect money from sponsors before the event and either bring them to Women In Need or to the event! The individual and team who raise the most money will be recognized with their very own Walk A Mile plague to display and brag about.
