Join us and take a stand against the pervasive issue of domestic violence and honor the resiliency of survivors in our community by strapping on a pair of heels and challenging your team to go the extra mile!
Bring all the men in your life, family, and friends to raise awareness of domestic violence and speak out against this serious issue in a unique, lighthearted way on Saturday, October 13 from 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at MLK Promenade Park in downtown San Diego.
Everyone and every shoe is welcome — heels optional, not required.
