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 www.winservices.org/event/waynesboro-walk-a-mile-2023/. T-shirt and high heels are provided. In order to receive the correct size, please register before September 8, 2023.
