Take a walk in her shoes

Men and their families are invited to Take A Walk In Her Shoes, a sexual assault awareness event, will run from 11:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 from in front of the Historic Haywood County Court House. The walk will be around the perimeter of the Court House lawn on the sidewalk. Sponsors will provide women’s shoes for the participants who need them, both heels and flats, as well as signs to carry and refreshments. Face painting and toe nail polishing will also be available for those who would like to have that experience.

The Ripples of Hope, artistic expressions from survivors of abuse, will also be on display at the event and then they will be distributed throughout Haywood and Transylvania counties at galleries and other community locations.

828.456.7898 or 828.476.4231.
