Walk A Mile In Her Shoes

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence.

This October, YWCA of San Diego County commemorates Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) in collaboration with community partners, service providers, and advocates across the country.

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.

Following the walk, celebrate with live music by Mojo Jackson, fresh Mediterranean fare provided by Luna Grill, a silent auction, and interactive games for all ages. Don’t stop there — organize a team and start your fundraising online today!

Event proceeds benefit survivors overcoming trauma and abuse in our Becky’s House® Domestic Violence Programs.
