“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Join us on Saturday, October 23rd to take a stand against sexual assault and domestic violence and show your support for survivors!
The impact of COVID-19 has made the need for resources for adults, children, and communities experiencing violence more critical than ever—AND YOU CAN HELP! Please plan to join us at the Poughkeepsie Galleria for our 11th Annual Family Services Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®.
Together, we will walk to end sexual assault and domestic violence, to show our solidarity with survivors, and to raise funds for services that not only support victims, but also educate youth on violence prevention and help offenders turn away from abusive behavior.
There are many ways you, your family, friends and business can participate:
Create, join or donate to a team. Gather your friends, family, and colleagues to form a walking team. Its easy to create your team page by clicking here to get started or you can join or donate to an existing team. Use one of our social share images to help fundraise.
