Walk Her Way Returns to Rosemary Beach June 12
June 8, 2015 by SoWal Staff
Kick up your heels at the 4th Annual Walk Her Way in Rosemary Beach on June 12 at 6:30 pm. Men, women and children of all ages are invited to put on high heels and follow the New Orleans style brass band through Rosemary Beach to raise awareness of domestic violence.
“Walk Her Way is a fun way to support a serious cause. It's a celebration for the women and children who have escaped domestic violence, as well as a way to raise funds for those who are still struggling,” said Zuma Banks, President of Rosemary Beach Foundation. “We're happy to partner with Shelter House on this event.”
Sign up for Walk Her Way at www.walkherway.com. Registration is $25 for adults and $10 for children under 12 and includes a t-shirt. On-site registration the day of the walk will be an additional $5 per person from 5:30-6:15 pm.
Will you walk in wedges, strut in stilettos, or prance in pumps? Whichever you choose, be sure to decorate your shoes or wear costumes to reflect your style and personality. Heels are suggested but not required.
After the walk, the fun continues with an after party and awards show hosted by Brook Stetler with live music from The Village Brass Band. Complimentary Grayton Beer will be served to registered adult walkers. One-of-a-kind shoe awards created by Walton County teachers and students will be given for the best costume, crowd favorites and more. Winners will be selected by audience noise level.
Walk Her Way benefits Shelter House, the domestic and sexual violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton counties, and Rosemary Beach Foundation, a nonprofit organization that offers and supports community, educational and other charitable activities in Walton County.
