Walk that walk

. March 29, 2013.

Findlay area men (and boys!) don’t just talk the talk — and  they’ll prove it during the fifth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event on Saturday, April 27 from 10 am to 2 pm. The walk-a-thon, part of a national movement to raise awareness of domestic violence issues against women, takes the age-old saying in its name literally as participating males don high heels and strut through Riverside Park. That attention-grabbing visual provides an opportunity to discuss gender violence, a difficult but necessary subject for the community to address. Walkers can register alone or as part of a team; proceeds benefit Open Arms Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center. Riverside Park, 219 McManness Ave. For more info, call 419-420-9261 or visit www.openarmsfindlay.org.
