Over 200 participants have already registered – the overwhelming majority is men – to participate in this event. Men will be walking in women’s high heel shoes, while the women enjoy the comfort of their sneakers or flats, all in an effort to raise awareness about domestic abuse and sexual assault. To date they have raised over $44,000.

 

Awards will be presented for biggest team, most money raised by a team and most money raised by an individual.

Join the men who have signed up to raise awareness about this important cause. They come from all “walks” of life: Assistant District Attorneys, fire fighters, law enforcement officers, corporate executives, students, and many more!

The funds raised from this fun, family-friendly event will benefit Laurel House’s comprehensive domestic violence programs. Each year more than 1,500 women and their families seek support from Laurel House while healing from the scars that domestic violence leaves.
