BAXTER-Organizers set the 12th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event for Aug. 24 at Mills Ford Automotive parking lot in Baxter.

Proceeds from the event will go to Sexual Assault Services in Brainerd. People are asked to challenge their co-workers, friends and relatives to register a team to walk the walk. Men are encouraged to walk with their hairy legs showing, with high heel shoes on to compete for prizes and show their support to end rape, sexual assault and gender violence in the community. Women and children can walk in regular shoes.

High heel shoes are provided for participants who do not have any. People are encouraged to drop off high heel shoes at the Brainerd or Baxter police departments, or call the Sexual Assault Services to set up a drop off time.

Those who don't want to walk but want to donate may write a check out to WAM and mail it to: Sexual Assault Services, 324 S. Fifth St., Suite S., Brainerd, MN, 56401. Those who wish to donate an item for the silent auction may contact info@sasmn.org or call 218-828-0494.
