“WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES” EVENT SET FOR TUESDAY, APRIL 22 ON EAST CENTRAL UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
East Central University’s Campus Initiative to Reduce Crime Against Women (CIRCAW) and Empowering You and Educating Students (EYES) will host a campus Sexual Assault Awareness Month event on Tuesday, April 22, at 6 p.m.
The community-wide event is designed to raise awareness of the blight of sexual assault victimization which not only affects victims but communities.
The event is affiliated with National Walk a Mile in her Shoes. Campus teams of two men and two women will be formed. The teams will share a pair of high heels on a relay course across campus.
EYES will have stations at each point in the race to ensure that the high heels are passed. The winning team will receive a traveling ‘spike heel’ trophy which will be exhibited in the University Center until the next event. T-shirts will be sold by EYES and food and other activities will be available.
For more information, contact Cassie Holloway, program coordinator for CIRCAW, at 580-559-5861.
