Walk A Mile in Her Shoes

Throughout the year, Blackburn Center sponsors and hosts events designed to gain support for our mission to end domestic and sexual violence, and to raise awareness about these issues.  With your help, we can reach our goal of ending gender-based violence in our community!

Rotary of Westmorland will have a team participating in the walk!

Our signature event, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, takes place each April in Greensburg.  In 2015, 1,100 people participated in the walk, carrying signs, wearing high heels, and signing the pledge to end gender-based violence. In 2016, we had 1,138 participants walking, running and even hobbling through the city.  In 2017, despite cold and rainy weather, we had more than 1,100 walkers.  This year, we hope to top 1,500 walkers and runners for our first-ever event at Offutt Field in Greensburg!

Our 2018 event will take place on April 21, 2018 at Offutt Field in Greensburg. Online registration is now open!  We encourage teams to participate as well; groups can register through the link below, and create their own page to promote the event and gather supporters.  Team guidelines are available here.
