As the old saying goes you don’t know what someone has been through until you have walked a mile in their shoes. On Saturday, July 27, men of Little Rock will be challenged to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes to support a worthy cause.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,® an international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence, will step into McCain Mall for the first time. The mall has partnered with the Human Resource Management Association of Arkansas (HRMA) to provide a day of awareness and entertainment. Participants can walk individually or with a team, and will receive a pair of heels, a t-shirt, goody-bag, prizes and more upon arrival. The event’s top individual and team fundraisers will receive additional prizes.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. and the walk starts at 11 a.m. Special hosts for the event will be Renee Shapiro, KATV-Channel 7 personality, and David Bazzell, host of The Buzz on 103.7 FM. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Union Rescue Mission: Dorcas House, a shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
