Walk A Mile In Her Shoes - Akron


Torchbearers is a group of young leaders in Akron who are passionate about building awareness for and bringing an end to sexual violence and rape.

The Torchbearers aim to raise $1,500 in donations for the Rape Crisis Center of Medina & Summit Counties through the 10th Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event.

With your help and your generous donations, members of Torchbearers - MEN included - will throw on a pair of women's heels and walk a mile through downtown Akron on Friday, April 24.

(If you recall, I participated in a similar event in Canton in October, which you can read about and see all the funny pics here.)

Doing this allows the men of Torchbearers to literally and figuratively consider what it is like in women's shoes.

For the women, it shows them that there are men in the community that support them and don't agree with gender based violence.

Donating online is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Please consider donating to our team by visiting our site. Or, if you are man enough, you can join our team! Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

- Michael Evans, Team Captain
