Walk a Mile In Her Shoes®
November 8, 2014
This year White Ribbon are introducing the global event Walk a Mile In Her Shoes®.
The mile walk consists of two unique components, the physical walk where men are expected to wear heels (or footwear that is not their everyday shoes); and the opportunity to highlight and discuss the issue and ramifications of sexual, physical and emotional abuse toward women. It also enables you to find people to sponsor your walk to raise funds for White Ribbon.
Each event in NZ is unique and will have different components. Details are below:
