Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

Saturday, April 29 - 11am start / Walk at Noon @ the Riverfront Park , Troy, NY

Event Details

The Sexual Assault & Crime Victims Assistance Program for Rensselaer County at Samaritan Hospital, in observance of April as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, hosts an annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®,” a community march against rape and sexual violence at Riverfront Park, Troy.

The first-of-its-kind community march invites the public – especially challenging men to show support for victims by literally walking a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. Walkers will start from Riverfront Park, proceed down River St., up Congress St., down 3rd, and then back to Riverfront Park.

An estimated 500 people turn out yearly for the event. Proceeds benefit direct services to victims, such as counseling, legal advocacy, and education and outreach efforts.
