The 4th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Charlotte charity walk for Safe Alliance is taking place this Saturday, August 27, 2016 at 9am at NoDa Brewing Northend.
This event is all about men (and women) raising awareness about rape and gender violence by walking a mile in heels. To quote Charlotte’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ® flyer, “In spirit of the old saying “you can’t understand someone’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes,” Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ® literally asks men to walk a mile in women’s high heeled shoes. The event is a playful and fun opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes and effects of sexualized violence.”
This year, the event will start and finish from the new NoDa Brewing Company location at 2921 N. Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC.
Date: Saturday, August 27th, 2016
Registration Begins: 9:00am
