About Walk a Mile & WIN
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes started as a small group of men daring to totter around a park and has grown to become the International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. It is a fun way to get the community to talk about the difficult topic of sexual violence and raise money for local services.
This is Women In Need’s 7th walk and we want it to be the biggest one yet! Each year we have had over a hundred men walk and have raised a total of over $100,000 that went directly to providing services to victims in the community.
Participant Guide & Donation Form
Download the 2019 Participant Guide for all the information you need to know about the walk and “funraising.” Also, download our donation form to help you collect in-person donations.
A big part of Walk a Mile is to help raise funds to provide services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in the community. We are asking participants to help us by collecting donations from your friends, family, co-workers, etc.
Well, registration fees mostly just help cover the costs of the event. By getting donors, you are helping to fund important services to your community.
This includes providing an advocate and certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner as part of a Sexual Assault Response Team. In our last fiscal year, our Sexual Assault Response Team provided advocacy, support, and care to 25 victims during sexual assault exams.
Asking for donations can sometimes be intimidating, but we offer some tips in our 2019 Participant Guide.
You can collect cash or checks and bring them to the event, or have people donate online. Direct people to winservices.org/wamdonate where they can donate to you or your team!
Don’t forget about the contests we are running this year!
