Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® to Benefit Turning Point Domestic Violence Services

The purpose of this event is to spread awareness about male violence towards women by gathering men and women together to walk a mile in high heels. This walk is meant to create an open environment for communication on a subject that is difficult to publicly address. In addition, all proceeds from this event will benefit Turning Point Domestic Violence Services, a non-profit organization that works towards the prevention and elimination of dating and domestic violence in South Central Indiana.

The walk will be held on Saturday, April 11 at the Columbus Learning Center (4555 Central Ave, Columbus, IN 47203). Registration and sign-in will begin at 9:00 am with a short opening ceremony starting at 9:45. The official walk will begin at 10:00. If you register prior to March 31, we ask that you raise a minimum of $20 and you will be guaranteed an event t-shirt. If you register later than March 31 or on the day of the walk, a minimum donation of $25 is required and there is no guarantee that you will receive a shirt. All participants are encouraged to wear high heels; however, it is not required. We ask that all individuals provide their own heels, but there will be a limited supply available on the day of the walk.

Please join the efforts of Turning Point and myself to spread awareness about this topic. You can register at http://walkamileinhershoescolumbus.eventbrite.com/
