The Rape Crisis Center of Milford, serving Ansonia, Derby, Milford, Orange, Seymour, Shelton, and West Haven will hold its 7th annual “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes: The Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence” event on Sunday, April 14.
Registration begins at noon and the walk kicks-off at 1 p.m. Participants will stroll one mile from Lisman Landing, around the Green and back to Lisman Landing while wearing a pair of woman's shoes. Walkers are asked to use their imagination in choosing footwear. The event is held rain or shine.
This year’s walk is sponsored by Cohen and Wolf, P.C. and The Milford Bank. There is no registration fee, but each walker is encouraged to collect sponsorship donations. Prizes and awards will be given out to the biggest team, most money raised, highest heel plus more. All registered walkers who collect at least $25 in donations will receive a walk t-shirt to commemorate the event.
