The second annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes started this year in City-County Plaza and with beautiful weather, drew 350 people to the start.
Participants ranged in age from 4-90 and styles were all over the map, from casual to formal. Understated, sensible shoes were in a definite minority. This is a flash/glam event, think disco and drag. Most returning walkers wore different shoes this time, either because “the ones last year killed my feet” or “I would never be caught dead wearing the same shoes twice.”
Money (and awareness) raised in the walk goes to assisting victims of gender violence. Their goal this year is $25,000 and you can still help at the fundraising link.
Better yet, be there for next year’s walk. Bring a team, try to beat Marco’s Pizza for the trophy.
