10/05/2018- You’re sure to see plenty of red high heels on the streets of Marinette this weekend. The Rainbow House is holding their Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event tomorrow beginning at 10:00 AM. Lead Advocate Jessica Honish says participants will hit the pavement in heels for a one-mile walk to raise funds for the local domestic abuse shelter and increase awareness about domestic violence. She says the event route is the same route victims might take if they are seeking county services and are without transportation.
Participants are asked to collect pledges for the walk and Honish says the money raised will not only support the shelter’s daily operations, but help ensure victims don’t have to take that walk themselves in the future.
Honish adds there will be red high heels available for walkers at the Rainbow House tomorrow morning, but participants may also wear more practical shoes for the event if they prefer. Registration and pledge forms for the 2018 Walk a Mile in her Shoes can be found online at therainbowhouse.us.
