Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the largest Men's March to End Sexual Assault and Gender Violence on the peninsula!


How it works:  Men collect pledges, then walk one mile in women's high heels.


All donations support the Center for Sexual Assault Survivors, a non profit rape crisis center.  The Center is the only stand alone  rape crisis center serving the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Smithfield and the counties of York and Isle of Wight.  We provide individual counseling, support groups, 24 hour crisis line, hospital/legal companionship, awareness events and professional training AT NO COST. Donations help pay rent, utilities, computer repairs,  supplies for childrens' art therapy, education supplies, clothing for victims, hotline costs,  education materials for parents and supplies to help victims of sex trafficking.

Help us keep our services free to survivors of sexual assault.  During fiscal year 2014, the Center provided services to 389 men, women and children who had experienced sexual violence. 

Our future goal:  Open a shelter for victims of sex trafficking and sexual violence.

Walk a Mile 2014 raised over $20,000. Help us surpass that!

If you talk the talk, THEN WALK THE WALK!
