A fun, community event where hundreds, and ultimately thousands, of men and women put on a pair of high-heeled shoes and walk through the streets of downtown San Diego in a light-hearted attempt to build awareness of the very serious issue of domestic violence and its impact on the community. This event allows men to experience the world through a woman’s point of view. Proceeds from Walk a Mile in Her Shoes will benefit the YWCA’s Becky’s House® Domestic Violence Program. All of the services provided by Becky’s House® support the individual’s journey from victim to survivor to achiever. The program includes a 30-60 day domestic violence emergency shelter, a 24-Hour emergency hotline, and two 18-24 month transitional housing communities for survivors of domestic violence and their families. Becky’s House® serves more than 500 women and children and receives nearly 2,500 hotline calls each year.
