Walk a Mile
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a national event designed to help raise awareness about sexual violence. Each year, men, women and their families join Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® to benefit Gracehaven. The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is a fun and quirky, but meaningful opportunity to raise awareness in the community about child sex trafficking.
First You Walk the Walk
There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men and women to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It is a unique opportunity to open the door on the discussion of child sex trafficking that happens right here in Central Ohio.
Then You Talk the Talk
It is critical to bring child sex trafficking into the light, but not very easy to do. People unfamiliar with child sex trafficking don't want to believe it exists. This is an ugly topic. How do you get people talking about this issue, so they can identify and prevent it from happening? And if it's already happened, how do you help guide them to recovery?
A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is abundant with opportunities to get people talking. For preventative education, it helps people in the community better understand and appreciate the child’s experiences, thus changing perspectives. For healing, it informs the community that services are available for recovery.
