Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
This year, we continue to walk the extra miles for domestic violence victims. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes was held virtually on Friday, August 7.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the main fundraiser for the domestic violence programming at YWCA Rock County. With your support, these programs help hundreds of victims each year.

During Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, we heard from a domestic violence victim who was helped by YWCA Rock County’s emergency shelter. She arrived at the YWCA with her young son in a time of crisis. Today, she is filled with hope for the future. In the video, she shared these words; “The YWCA has actually shown me that I am somebody, and I can be anything and do anything, if I put my mind to it.”
Your support of Walk a Mile in Her Shoes helps ensure these survivors will always have a place to turn in times of crisis.
