HAMPTON - "Walk A Mile In Her Shoes" is an annual event that encourages men to literally walk a mile wearing women's high heel shoes to raise awareness about sexual violence.
It's Saturday, April 13 at Peninsula Town Center in Hampton. Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 11:00 a.m., according to the Center for Sexual Assault Survivors, based in Newport News.
