Description

Originally created by Frank Baird in 2001, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is designed to encourage men to work together to end sexual violence against women, while raising funds for local rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters. In 2008, the YWCA of San Diego County brought the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® concept to San Diego, and held the first event in October that year. Due to the overwhelming success and impact on the community, the YWCA now holds the annual fundraising event to benefit our Becky's House® domestic violence program. Growing each year, the YWCA aims to mobilize men, women, and children to champion this critical issue by literally walking a mile in a women's pair of shoes - a light-hearted attempt to build awareness of domestic violence and its negative impact on the San Diego Community.
