Slip on or lace up your favorite purple shoes and join us for Take Steps In Their Shoes. This is a multifaceted event to raise awareness about domestic violence and to raise funds to support the services of Steps to End Domestic Violence (formerly Women Helping Battered Women).
Walk with us in unity along the Pine Street corridor while wearing purple shoes to raise awareness about our programs and services.
Bid on silent auction items to support our services and programs.
Listen as those affected by domestic violence tell their stories about what it’s truly like to walk in their shoes either from the stage or through video and audio recordings.
Encourage friends and family to register, or create a team and take steps together. This is a family friendly event. The first 100 individual participants to raise $500 will earn an event t-shirt. The top fundraising team will earn a special team trophy. If you can't attend our event, but would still like to support us, please feel free to donate to a participant's fundraising page.
Our services and programs are available to everyone affected by domestic violence in Chittenden County, Vermont. With your fundraising support we can continue to provide these critical services, at no cost, to everyone. Whether by supporting our emergency shelter, education and prevention initiatives, or our 24/7 hotline, each donation counts and will help change lives.
