In support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month’s Day of Action the West Palm Beach campus of Keiser University is hosting a “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event. Students and employees — both male and female – will attempt to wear high heels throughout the mile walk, which will kick off in the campus parking lot.

The event serves as a metaphor for appreciating women’s experiences, improving gender relationships and opening communication on how to decrease violence against women. Each male participant will be accepting pledges with the goal of raising at least $50 per quater mile walked. All proceeds will benefit the Mary Rubloff YWCA Harmony House, a shelter for abused women.
