Walk a Mile 2021

You’ve come to us for 9 years … now we’re coming to you!

The logistics of the Walk are changing, as we adapt to the reality of COVID-19. But the call to

action to end gender-based violence remains the same. For its first nine years, the Walk was

held in downtown Greensburg. In 2021, we’re expanding the Walk to all of Westmoreland

County so you can take a stand while staying close to home.

We’ve developed a format that incorporates a mile walk in any setting in the county and online

activities to inform and inspire the community to act.

Since March 2020, we’ve learned a lot about the importance of community and caring for our

neighbors. As part of our activities, we’ll be exploring the impact of empathy on ending gender-

based violence and its power in making our world a better place for future generations.

Join us … we can explore together.

#WalkBlackburn 2021 will take place between April 7 and 10, at a location of your choosing. Registration is free this year (suggestion donation: $5 or more). You can also request a Walk t-shirt and/or yard sign here. To learn more, or to register, click below!
