Lisa Fanucci-Dario

Lisa Fanucci-Dario is hosting A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in downtown Fredericksburg on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at 2pm

The walk brings awareness to the seriousness of domestic violence and raises money for Empowerhouse. Walkers and spectators will meet at the commuter lot in downtown Fredericksburg for an opening ceremony. 

Immediately following the opening ceremony, walkers will Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, literally! Men will slip into a pair of red high heels to show their support for the cause!

Walkers and spectators will walk to the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill where there will be live music, guest speakers, a 50/50 raffle, and food & drinks!

Register to Walk Now!

Register as an individual or as a team. 

Individual Walk tickets are $30 each /$100 for a team of 4. 

Walkers can register to walk as an individual, family, or team. This will also give walkers someone to lean on during the walk (balancing in heels can be tricky!).

Team ideas: college, high school, and league sports teams, fraternities, restaurants, businesses, teachers, stylists, car dealerships, friends, families, real estate offices, lenders....(you get the idea!).

Don't let the high heels stop you from being part of this wonderful event! If the shoes will stop you from walking -- wear your sneakers (hopefully they are red!).

When registering, Leave us your T-shirt size for a free shirt if you register before September 21st!
