Walk a Mile in Their Shoes

Walk a Mile in Their Shoes: A March Against Sexual and Domestic Violence is Strength United's signature community event to raise awareness about sexual assault, domestic violence, child maltreatment and other forms of intimate abuse. 

Bring the whole family on October 25, 2014 to: 

  • Walk a Mile through campus and the city streets raising awareness and funds in support of those who have suffered from abuse
  • Enjoy our family activity fair and resource expo
  • Win fundraising prizes
  • Join your community to rally against violence! 

At the event, families, students and community members will gather on the CSUN campus and walk a mile through campus and the local city streets, expressing solidarity with victims of violence. Many men at the march wear women’s high-heels and literally walk a mile in her shoes through Northridge’s busy streets, but participants may walk in whatever footwear they would like. The march will be followed by a fun community resource and activity fair on campus for the participants, volunteers and their families. 

Carmen_SeranoBreaking Bad actress and assault survivor Carmen Serano will join us as a featured guest and speaker at the walk! 

All proceeds from the event go directly to Strength United's work to end violence in our community! Register and begin fundraising today to join us as we Break the Silence and End the Violence! We are happy to announce that for each $100 donated toward your walk, you will be entered in a drawing to receive one of several fundraising prizes, including $50 Target gift cards and a Keurig coffee brewer!
