SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH EVENT BEING HELD AT ECU APRIL 16

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 16, at 7 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 mile course throughout the upper level in campus, starting at the Bill S. Cole University Plaza toward Science Hall and across the mall with a turnaround point at the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center.
 
EYES will have stations at each quarter mile to ensure that the high heels are passed. Recruitment started on April 1 and there is no registration fee. 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 as food and other activities will be available.
 
ECU President John Hargrave will be the grand marshal.
