On Saturday, May 4, 2019, The Center will hold our Annual Walk a Mile in HER Shoes© event on Placerville’s Historic Main Street where men will step into some crazy large women’s high heels and walk a mile to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.

Game on — can you sport a pair of heels for a whole mile? Challenge your friends to get involved by organizing a team and competing to see who can raise the most funds.
