It's the 3rd Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser on Saturday, July 18 in downtown Dowagiac. The walk is about raising awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault, or sexism in general.
"Just the fact that they're willing to be out of their comfort zone, to accept people saying things to them that might not be so pleasant and just to know that I'm going to have a little pain, maybe a few blisters, maybe some bleeding toes as I walk a mile in high heels," said Kim Kramer, Executive Director of Domestic and Sexual Abuse Services.
Anyone is welcome to walk at the event. High heels and flip-flops for men will be provided in common sizes.
Registration for the walk starts at 9 a.m. and the walk kicks off at 10 a.m. Registration is free. The event will be in downtown Dowagiac at Beckwith Park on the corner of Beeson and Front Streets. There will also be food, children's games and a lot of fun.
