Event description

Description

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, you are invited to participate in the third-annual Walk A Mile Chippewa Valley event on Sunday, October 23rd, 2016 at noon at the Pine Pavilion in Carson Park!

Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. Walk A Mile-Chippewa Valley is expanding this mission by encouraging people of all genders, ages, and walks of life to participate in a one-mile walk to raise awareness and show support for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.  

This event is being held in collaboration with Family Support Center, Bridge to Hope, Bolton Refuge House, and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Women’s and LGBTQ Resource Center. Together, these agencies served over 2,500 survivors of violence in 2015. All proceeds from the event will benefit these local anti-violence programs that support victim/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. 

Registration opens on September 1st. Register before October 1st to receive a free T-shirt at the event (while supplies last).

Same-day registration for the event will begin at 11am at Pine Pavilion. Same-day registration is $25 for adults and $15 for students. Cash and credit will be accepted the day of the event.
