"You can't understand a person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes."
WIN's fourth annual walk will take place on Friday, May 6th, 2016 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. Men may walk individually or as a team, challenging friends and co-workers for this very worthy cause. We'll also ask participants to secure sponsorships and donations from their friends and family.
With the generous contributions from our 168 walkers, their families, and the community, last year we raised over $20,000 for Women In Need to help service victims of domestic and sexual violence in Franklin and Fulton counties.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the International Men's March where men literally walk in women's high-heeled shoes as a symbolic gesture to raise awareness on the issue of violence against women. When men participate in this event, they show to the community that they are willing to take a stand against violence. Sexual violence affects our entire society and all of us can make a difference.
