Event Description:
Walk-A-Mile In Her Shoes 

Help raise awareness about violence against women by walking a mile in downtown Fredericksburg wearing high heeled shoes. This is a family friendly event. men, women and children are encouraged to walk.


The walk brings awareness to the seriousness of domestic violence and raises money for Empowerhouse. Walkers and spectators will meet at the commuter lot in downtown Fredericksburg for an opening ceremony. 

Immediately following the opening ceremony, walkers will Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, literally! Men will slip into a pair of red high heels to show their support for the cause!

Walkers and spectators will walk to the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill where there will be live music, guest speakers, a 50/50 raffle, and food & drinks!
