Women Helping Women and the West Maui Domestic Violence Task Force invite the public to participate in the 4th Annual Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Whaler’s Village in Kāʻanapali.

During the event, volunteers and community leaders take a pledge to help end domestic violence by participating in a walk to raise awareness for the cause.

In past years, organizers encouraged men to be leaders in the ongoing effort to prevent violence against women by asking them to walk a “mile” in women’s high-heeled shoes.

Participants will have a chance to win prizes and special awards for the best costume, largest team and most walker sponsorships.  Walkers can register and put a team together at the event website.  Donations are welcome as well.
