September 10, 2015 - More than 220 men, women and children put on high heels and took to the streets of Rosemary Beach earlier this summer for the largest Walk Her Way yet. Now in its fourth year, the Rosemary Beach Foundation event brought awareness to domestic violence and raised $30,000 for Shelter House and Rosemary Beach Foundation.

Led by Village Brass Band, walkers strolled around town showing off their favorite pair of high heels, decorated shoes and fun costumes. Unique shoe-themed awards designed by Walton County students and educators were presented at the after-party.

“Walk Her Way continues to grow each year. We are thankful for the overwhelming support from our sponsors and the community,” said Rosemary Beach Foundation Executive Director Malayne DeMars.

Walk Her Way is not just a fun walk. It also carries a serious message about respect and healthy relationships with a display of 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, at the start and finish lines.

“We are grateful to the Rosemary Beach Foundation for providing Shelter House with vital funding and for increasing awareness of domestic violence,” said Shelter House Executive Director Rosalyn Iovieno. “Seeing such a positive response from the community again this year leaves me hopeful that through Walk Her Way more people now know that resources exist right here in our local area to help survivors of domestic and sexual violence and that more people will join us in our vision of all relationships violence-free.”
