WALK AWHILE is a family-friendly walk in which men are asked to wear high-heeled shoes to show their support for women throughout the community.
Onsite registration begins at the Market House in downtown Fayetteville at 6:00pm and the walk starts at 7:00pm on Friday, March 23, 2018 and will go from the Market House to the AIT building. We will have a reception following the event at the AIT building and refreshments will be available for walkers and/or those who have made a donation. Registration is only $25 for walkers or those who just want to join us for the party at AIT. Students can register for a discounted rate of $15. Businesses are encouraged to raise donations internally by having male supervisors or CEOs agree to walk if employees can raise enough money (goals can be set by the company). It is a great way to encourage team-building and support a great cause at the same time!
Why is this event necessary? The number of rapes and sexual assaults in our community are continually growing, and volunteer and financial resources are strained to combat the problem.
