Why Do YOU Walk?

January 28, 2015

Each year, our Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event gets bigger, from a few hundred walkers in 2010 

to close to 1,000 in 2014 (and hopefully, closer to 1,500 walkers in 2015!).  We have such 

amazing community support, and are incredibly grateful that so many of you have embraced 

this cause.  Our walkers are a diverse bunch — from collegiate student-athletes to parents to 

medical students to business owners to young children to grandparents to roller derby teams, 

we have an entire spectrum of people walking each April, raising awareness and support for our 


Just as our walkers are a diverse bunch, their reasons for walking are as well.  Some walk 

because their lives have been touched by domestic or sexual violence.  Some walk in memory 

or honor of a loved one.  Some walk because of a commitment to ending gender violence.  

Some walk because they simply want to make our community a better place.    Regardless of 

the reason, we are thankful for each and every person who chooses to participate in our walk.

If you are walking for a specific purpose — or person — we would love to hear from you.  We 

are seeking submissions for our blog about why YOU Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.  Your post 

could be featured on our website and shared on our social media, sharing your story and 

inspiring others to join us.  Our submission guidelines can be found here and you can 

email us anytime with questions or submissions.  We look forward to hearing your story!
