WIN Provides Opportunity to “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”

WIN Victim Services (formerly Women in Need) invites Waynesboro and the surrounding community to the 2nd annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser on September 22, 2023, in Downtown Waynesboro.

Walk a Mile is one of WIN’s most iconic fundraisers, doubling as a poignant way to raise awareness about the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault in the local areas. Participants will put on a pair of red high heels as a way to literally walk a mile in someone else’s shoes and show solidarity for victims of domestic and sexual violence.

Each year, WIN serves over 1,000 survivors of abuse. The funds raised at Walk a Mile allow WIN to continue providing free services like emergency shelter, counseling, legal advocacy and preventative education.

Registration for the event is currently available on WIN’s website. On the day of the event, check-in begins at 5pm at Main Street Park, with the walk beginning at 6pm. There will also be a celebration after the walk at Rough Edges Brewing.

Interested participants can register on the WIN website at T-shirt and high heels are provided. In order to receive the correct size, please register before September 8, 2023.

WIN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping, educating, supporting, and empowering victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. WIN’s services include a 24-hour hotline (717-264-4444), empowerment counseling, support groups, 30-day emergency shelter, and legal advocacy. For more information, visit their website:

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
