Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: April 24

All students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members are invited to participate in the 11th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event on Sunday, April 24, at Crisis Services, 2969 Main Street in Buffalo. Registration is free and begins at 11:00 a.m.; games and activities begin at 11:30 a.m.

Special guests attending this year include New York State Senator Tim Kennedy, Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael Flaherty, and former Buffalo Sabre Darryl Shannon. We encourage as many people from the Buffalo State community to attend as possible in the form of one large Buff State team. The event recognizes the largest campus (ratio per enrollment). UB and other schools typically have a large presence from their campuses, sports teams, cheerleaders, and student organizations. This event is a great way for campus organizations to get involved in the community and raise awareness for an important cause (plus plenty of photo ops). The event is family and dog friendly.

Thank you to everyone who has assisted by donating to and promoting this event and the good work of our community. For reaching the $1,000 goal, as promised, Buffalo State University Police Chief Carey will participate in the walk and will be in good company with Dean of Students Charles Kenyon!

Donations are still being accepted.

All proceeds go to the Advocate Program at Crisis Services, which provides confidential response and support services for survivors of rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, family violence, and elder abuse 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The closing celebration will feature activities, prizes, and more. Don’t forget to wear your heels! Gentlemen: If you need heels for the walk, don’t worry. We will have shoes available for you in any size!

Please visit the Walk a Mile Facebook page for photos and videos from past events. Contact Paula Madrigal, assistant director of prevention and health promotions, 878-4719, for more information.
