Date: Sunday, April 27
Times: Festival begins at 11:30 am. Walk commences at 1 pm. Festival ends at 5 pm.
Location: Capitol Mall between 5th & 7th
On Sunday, April 27, 2014, Capitol Mall will be over taken by more than 700 men who will walk, run, and limp the one-mile walk course while wearing high heels.
Any man can participate for a $40 registration which includes shoes, t-shirt, swag bag, and festival access! When these men come together with the event’s sponsors, more than $210,000 will be raised – critical funds which will ensure 24 hour services are available for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Prevention and Education are critical in improving how our community responds to violence. WEAVE is committed to breaking the cycle of violence by educating the community to better understand the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault.
