WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® FUNDRAISER SLATED FOR SATURDAY AT THE GOVERNENT CENTER – 4/18/2013
DATE: Saturday, April 20
TIME: 9 a.m. registration; 10 a.m. walk
WHERE: 100 North Street, Monticello, N.Y.
This Saturday, April 20, men, women and children will walk the grounds of the Sullivan County Government Center and on Broadway in Monticello at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event to raise funds for the Rape Intervention Services and Education (RISE) program of Sullivan County. Many of the men will wear women’s shoes at the event, which takes a light-hearted approach to a very serious subject and increases awareness of how sexual assault impacts individuals and families in Sullivan County.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk kicks-off at 10 a.m. A reception will follow and will include a short program, refreshments and educational booths. Anyone can walk, and same-day registrants are welcome. Men are encouraged (but not required) to walk in women’s shoes. The registration fee is $20 and participants may also secure contributions through pledges.
Immediately following the Walk is a picnic from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at DeHoyos Park in Monticello. The Chicken BBQ fundraiser, hosted by the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Sullivan Class of 2013, is $10 per person. There will also be a free shuttle from the Government Center to DeHoyos Park and back. All funds go directly to support RISE of Sullivan County.
