Think YOU have what it talks to walk a mile in her shoes?

The “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Men’s March”, hosted by SafeHaven of Tarrant County, asks men to literally walk a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes to raise awareness of an issue that is often kept quiet: violence against women.

But as hundreds of men take to the streets, the message will be heard loud and clear, “We aren’t afraid to stand up to end violence against women!”

There is no registration fee, but men are asked to bring a toy or gift card to donate to our Santa’s Sack drive. Toys and gift cards during Santa’s Sack are distributed to women and children staying in our shelters on Christmas.

Yes! I want to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®?

Men literally walk a mile in women’s heels to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.

When is it?

SafeHaven is holding two walks on December 13 at 9 a.m. The Arlington Walk will begin at the Arlington Shelter and end at Olenjacks. The Fort Worth Walk will start and end at The Woodshed . Register for the walk closest to you!

How do I participate?

The walk is open to individual men and boys and teams of walkers. Team
captains can register their team at safehaventc.org by simply entering the name and e-mail address of their team members, or individual walkers and team members may register themselves at any time prior to walk day.

Entry fee is a toy/gift card donation for SafeHaven’s Santa’s Sack Holiday Drive which walkers are asked to bring with them on Walk day.

Everyone is welcome to come cheer on the walkers. Spectators can show their support by wearing purple. Register yourself or your team today at safehaventc.org.

What about the shoes?

Men are encouraged to bring their own heels. We will have a limited supply available on walk day. You can get 20{18491fa3714fea8d08d95590ffb001d1ade5097a5805c7edbc7ff5963444cfd9} off heels when you purchase
them at Berry Good Buys and mention “Walk a Mile”.

Do you have collateral I can print and share?

Yes, of course. We encourage you to send your friends to the SafeHaven of Tarrant County website to register on the event or you can download and print PDF versions of our Walk a Mile poster and Walk a Mile registration form.

Signs

Because the goal of this event is to increase awareness of violence against women, walkers and their cheering section are encouraged to bring signs that reinforce the key message behind the walk — End Domestic Violence.

Sample signs and graphics are available for download here. Feel free to personalize them.
