Registration opens for Walk a Mile

PALESTINE, March 15, 2013—Registration is now open for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, the International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence.

Each year, a growing number of men, women, and their families join to support this event as the men walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. The walk is not an easy task, but it’s a fun way to get the community to talk about gender relations and sexual violence.

The Walk a Mile event will be held in Cherokee County, in Jacksonville on April 20, and in Anderson County, in Palestine, on April 27. Call for more information or registration information: Palestine: 903-723-5858, Jacksonville: 903-586-9118.

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Rodger Pharr and Casey Kirkpatrick about the events. Click below to hear interview.
