They say you can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes. And this Saturday, Oct. 13, you can join Family Services and stand up against sexual assault, gender violence and domestic violence at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event from 9 am - noon at Allsport Health and Fitness on Old Main Street in Fishkill.

This is a free and family friendly event. Everyone is invited to walk in any kind of shoes that they feel represents those for whom they walk. High heels, high tops, boots, loafers, flip flops or flats. Walking in someone else's shoes gets the community to talk about and confront the need to eliminate violence in our community.

People of all ages and genders are welcome. To find out more about the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, to form a team, or to make a donation, visit the website or the facebook page.
