Malone University and Domestic Violence Project present Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence

Malone University and the Domestic Violence Project, Inc. (DVPI) are uniting to present Walk a Mile in Her Shoes – The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence, Saturday, October 15 from 9:30 – 11 a.m. on the Malone University campus located at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W in Canton.

The walk demonstrates that men are willing to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place. Participants are required to walk one mile in women’s shoes – which, as women already know – can be a challenge!

Local student high school athletes have committed to walking a mile in women’s shoes as a symbol of support for the cause. Community members are welcome to participate, or cheer the guys on as they hobble toward the finish line! Registration is $20 per person, and participants should bring their own shoes. For more information contact Stacey Giammarco, development and marketing director for Domestic Violence Project (330-445-2004), or Jessica Kincaid, marketing and development coordinator (330-445-2005).
