Special walk planned in Princeton

Posted by wlpo on May 16, 2013

High heels aren’t the most comfortable shoes for walking but it’s what men in Princeton will be wearing for special cause.  “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” is a domestic and sexual violence awareness event during which men take a stand against violence by wearing women’s shoes.

Michelle Spears is with Freedom House- a sexual and domestic violence shelter.  She says the walk is a funny event for a good cause.

The walk will be based at Soldiers and Sailors Park new the Bureau County Courthouse.  You’ll find music, food, face painting and monster tricycle races.  There will also be an auction.  Registration begins at 12pm Saturday.  There’s a $20 donation to walk.

You can learn more about the walk by listening to an interview that up at the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
