The 8th Annual Family Services Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is Saturday, October 13.

Now 97.7 and Family Services have joined together for the Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes. The annual walk is to stand up against sexual assault, rape, gender violence, and domestic violence.

The event originally asked men to walk literally walk a mile in her shoes, by walking a full mile in high heels. Family Services and Now 97.7 encourages anyone who walks to wear shoes that they feel represents who they are walking for.  Whether it's high heels, high tops, boots, loafers, flip-flops or flats.

The statistics on sexual assault and domestic violence are scary. 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually assaulted before they turn 18. Every 9 seconds in the US, a woman is beaten or assaulted. In 8 out of 10 cases of sexual assault, the victim knows the perpetrator.

The event starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 13 at All Sport Health & Fitness Club Outdoor Club at 17 Old Main Street, Fishkill, NY. Join Taylor, Now 97.7 and Family Services NY as they Walk A Mile In Her Shoes.
