NEW DATE - rescheduled from October!
There is a saying: "You can't understand another'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 shoes to get the community talking about violence against women. Albemarle Hopeline will sponsor such an event on Saturday, April 1 at Northeastern High School’s athletic field in Elizabeth City. Registration begins at 8:00am with the walk starting at 9:00. There is no fee to walk, and men, women and children are invited to participate.
Men representing law enforcement and fire departments across the Albemarle region will start the walk off by walking a lap around the track in women’s shoes with other walkers falling in behind to walk a 4 lap mile.
This event is part of Hopeline’s recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Each April Hopeline joins other organizations around the country in honoring those affected by rape and sexual abuse.
