Walk Her Way in Rosemary Beach

Are you man enough? Will you wear stilettos? Or do you prefer a wedge? Whatever your preference, sign up to Walk Her Way at www.walkherway.com.

Next week men, women and children of all ages will don high heels for Walk Her Way at Rosemary Beach’s Town Center on Friday, June 15 starting at 5:30 pm. Sponsored by Rosemary Beach Foundation, this one-mile strut aims to raise awareness of domestic violence with a portion of proceeds benefiting Shelter House.

Walkers will be led around the square by a “second line” jazz band as they show off their favorite pair of high heels. The good time doesn’t stop when the walk ends. Stick around for the after-party at 6:30 pm featuring Heat and The Zydeco Gents.

You are encouraged to decorate your shoes to reflect your style and personality. Heels will be available for purchase at the event and at packet pick-up the day before the walk.

Advance registration is $30 for adults and $15 for children under 12 and includes a t-shirt. Registration the day of the walk will be an additional $5 per person register at www.walkherway.com.

Walk Her Way is not just a fun walk. It carries a serious message about respect and healthy relationships. Shelter House’s Clothesline Project, a touching exhibit that allows adult and child victims of domestic violence to tell their story through words and art, will be on display in Rosemary Beach leading up to and during the walk.

The walk will benefit Shelter House, the domestic violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton counties, and Rosemary Beach Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting cultural, educational, literary and other charitable activities in Rosemary Beach and Northwest Florida.
