Benefiting Merrimack County Task Force Against Domestic Violence
There’s an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes.
You don’t have to wear high-heels, but it's part of the fun, and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: domestic & sexual violence. W.A.M. 2016 is not just for men and boys. Everyone is invited and welcome to raise awareness about these critical issues.
Join us on October 5, 2016 On Main Street in Downtown Concord (State House Arches) as we proudly proclaim:
"NO MORE!-- Not in our community, not in our society!"
And Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.
Join W.A.M. 2016 as an individual, join a team, or start your own team. Online registration is available today! All proceeds from W.A.M. 2016 support the Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire to benefit women, children and men affected by domestic & sexual violence in Merrimack County.
