Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The Someplace Safe Perham Advocacy Office hosting a "Virtual Walk"

Each year, the Someplace Safe Perham Advocacy Office hosts the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. This annual event, in which men don high heel shoes, literally asks participants to "walk a mile in her shoes" while raising awareness for sexual violence.

It may not be comfortable to walk a mile in high heels ... but it this event allows community members to become more aware of sexualized and gender based violence, while joining in the fun of wearing heels with friends, peers, and co-workers.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Someplace Safe Perham Advocacy Office will not be be hosting this event in-person this year. However - while practicing social distancing, you can STILL support the Someplace Safe Perham Office while showing your support of local survivors of sexualized violence. 

We invite you to pledge your support with a VIRTUAL WALK!

Anyone can participate and pledge. Here are some options:

1. Cozy Couch option - From the comfort of your couch, purchase either a $10 or $25 pledge card for a virtual walk on/before April 3rd. No walking or high heels needed! Just pledge your support, sit back, and relax!

2. In-Home Workout option -  Find your favorite pair of heels or comfy tennis shoes. Wear them while walking indoors on your treadmill, stair climber, or while using other fitness equipment. Purchase a $10 or $25 pledge card to show your support and get in a work out at home!
