Local men become heroes in high heels as they strap on stilettos to raise awareness and funds to combat domestic violence at Walk A Mile In Her Shoes.

Men get a chance to literally walk a mile in her shoes by slipping into high heels and suffering through a one mile walk to show support and raise money for S.A.F.E. Place.

The 8th annual “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” is Saturday, October 22 at Lakeview Square Mall in Battle Creek. Don't miss this playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediations to men's violence against women.

The goal is to promote education and awareness to end domestic violence and create a safer community. All proceeds go directly to S.A.F.E. Place, Calhoun County’s domestic violence shelter. Your support will help provide emergency response and services to victims of domestic violence and ultimately help advocate for change that will end domestic violence in our community.
