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. 

Thank you to our 2014 Walk a Mile participants, donors, sponsors, and exhibitors! See photos from our great day on the Strength United Facebook page

Each fall you can bring the whole family on 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. 

All proceeds from the event go directly to Strength United's work to end violence in our community!  

More details about our 2015 walk coming soon!
