Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Get Ready to Walk! And Shed Light on
Violence Against Women
The YLS has teamed up with Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® to organize a unique walk for men through Chicago's Loop. Men are invited to literally walk one mile through Chicago's Loop in women's high-heeled shoes (women are invited to participate and support the male walkers). The event aims to raise awareness about the cause and effects of sexualized violence and will be a fun way to get people talking about a very difficult subject.
Proceeds will benefit our cosponsor Between Friends. Participants must wear high heels. Purchasing (or borrowing) a pair of high heels is the responsibility of the participant (see suggested locations below).
Bring your friends, bring your colleagues!
SCHEDULE (subject to change):
5:30-5:50 p.m. - Between Friends, our co-sponsor of the event is a nonprofit agency dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse. A representative from Between Friends will address the crowd and introduce Himagiri (Hima) Sarma from Family Rescue who will give a key note speech before the walk gets underway.
5:55 p.m. – Put those heels on and get ready to walk 1 mile through the Loop.
6:30 p.m. – Join us after the Walk for the YLS June Social Hour at the Hyatt Regency's Big Bar (151 E Upper Wacker Dr., Chicago, IL 60601). Complimentary appetizers and drinks will be served while supplies last courtesy of Exponent and Barkley Court Reporters.
