Calling All Men: Walk a Mile in Her Shoes for Charity

The male members of the campus community are invited to slip on a pair of women's heels and walk around campus on Thursday, Feb. 21, to show support and respect for women and call for an end to sexual and relationship violence against them.

The "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event, co-sponsored by the ODU Women's Center and the Center for Service and Civic Engagement, is set for noon to 2 p.m. on Kaufman Mall. The rain site is the South Mall inside Webb Center.

Women on campus are likewise encouraged to support their male allies by cheering them on and buying beads for $1 at the event for them to wear as they walk. Prizes will be awarded to the man who raises the most money and the one who collects the most beads.

There will also be a shoe decorating contest and an opportunity to donate $1 to vote for your favorite pair.

All proceeds from the event go to the YWCA of South Hampton Roads.

For details on registering to walk and/or participate in the shoe-decorating contest, call the Women's Center at 683-4109 or visit walkamile.
