Join the march to end violence against women!
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an international men’s march to end rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. Be a part of the movement! Join our 10th annual walk at the K.V.P.D. RecCenter on Friday, April 21st. Participants are encouraged to wear women’s shoes as a symbol of their commitment to ending violence against women. Help us meet the goal of 150+ walkers from Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. The event starts and ends at the K.V.P.D. RecCenter. Our route will take us through downtown Kankakee and around the County Courthouse.
Kankakee County Center Against Sexual Assault (KCCASA) and Iroquois Sexual Assault Services (ISAS) would love to have your support as a participant in this walk, and encourage you to assemble a team of 5-10 people to join.
