Walk A Mile in Her Shoes®

May 2, 2015

This light-hearted event asks the men of Central Alabama to literally walk a mile in her shoes while raising awareness and funds for the YWCA’s domestic violence services. Community leaders, businessmen, students and residents are asked to strap on a pair of red high heels and walk around beautiful Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham. This is fun, family-friendly event features a free block party after the walk.
