Men take a walk for domestic violence

The sixth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Outlets of Maui in Lahaina.

The event allows men to show their support and understanding of women’s experiences, including domestic and sexual violence, by walking in women’s shoes.

The event is hosted by Women Helping Women’s West Maui Task Force. There will be a Zumba warmup prior to the walk, refreshments and activities including prize drawings and face painting.

Walkers can register online at www.womenhelpingwomenmaui.com/events/6th-annual-walk-a-mile/. Cost is $20. It includes an event backpack, T-shirt and one entry into the prize drawing along with merchant coupons and free parking. Registration begins at 8 a.m.

The first 100 registrants will be entered into an early-bird drawing for a cash prize of $100.

For donors to Women Helping Women, an optional pledge form is available. Prizes will be given to the walker or team with the best costume, most sponsors and largest donation.
