There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. On August 14, 2015, a team of 10 from AquaPhoenix participated in the Walk to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse while contributing over $1,500 to the Hanover YWCA. The community event raised over $30,000 and the Hanover YWCA will use the money to fund their Safe Home and Still Waters programs.
