AVENUES needs your help to increase awareness about Rape
We are looking for men to partner with us on a very visible awareness event that will also serve as a fund-raiser. We are looking for men who are willing to “WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES™.” An Internationally known program, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes™ asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. It is not easy for most men to walk in women’s high heel shoes, but the event promises to be fun and it will get the community talking about rape and each person’s ability to make a difference.
AVENUES’ Walk a Mile in Her Shoes™, Music and BBQ is scheduled for Friday July 18, 2014. Prior to the event date, walkers will be provided with a walk packet and asked to obtain a minimum of $100 in sponsorships from family, friends and colleagues.
Prizes will be awarded including a prize to the individual who raise the most money. This year we have added a short but challenging obstacle course for those brave walkers who wish to participate.
