Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Successful in Sallisaw
Carl Albert State College, along with sponsors Dr. Jennifer Scoufos from The Family Clinic, and the Health and Wellness Clinic hosted “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes.” The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence was in Sallisaw on October 29, 2015.
Dr. Kathy Harrell, CASC Sallisaw Vice President, stated that numerous organizations and individuals helped with the event, and the focus is to raise awareness in the community about sexual violence. The “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” highlighted participants walking the event in women’s high heel shoes. The men paid an entry fee to participate, and also had opportunities to rent shoes and even hire a ride! The Carl Albert State College Cheerleaders were among the many on hand to help with the event, and the nearly $500 raised will go to the regional Help-In-Crisis Center.
