Stellar Fitness Seeks Volunteers for Walk A Mile In Her Shoes

Sep 30, 2016 11:22AM

October is domestic violence month, and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an international men’s march at 4:30 p.m., October 7 that raises awareness and funds to eliminate gender violence in local communities. Men and boys take part in a mile-long walk through Downtown York in women’s high heels. Women and families are also welcome to walk in support of their man and raise money to sponsor walkers. All proceeds benefit YWCA York programs geared to end violence against women and girls.

It's not easy walking in those shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about a difficult subject: violence against women and girls. Stellar Fitness, in York, is asking the community to join them on the walk that begins and ends at LSC Design.

Tia Brown, owner of Stellar Fitness, says, “Our personalized fitness studio offers self-defense classes regularly and once a month we teach an Attack Survival Skills class, the next one being from 3 to 5 p.m., October 29.”

Location: 320 N. George St. To join the Stellar Fitness team, contact Brown for details and to register at 717-858-7178 or visit StellarFitnessllc.com. For more information, visit ywcayork.org. See ad page 39.
