For the first time, Women’s Information Services Inc. is hosting Walk a Mile for WISE, in an effort to bring awareness to sexual violence against women. All walkers including men will walk from Hemlock Park to downtown Big Rapids while wearing high heels. Registration begins at 5:00 pm and the walk begins at 6:00 pm.
The registration fee is $20 with proceeds going to WISE, helping provide emergency response and services to victims of domestic violence of sexual assault in Mecosta, Osceola, and Newaygo counties. Registration is open until right before the walk, but those who register by April 14th are guaranteed a t-shirt. Participants must provide their own heels.
Participants can preregister at Fabulous Finds, 103 S. Michigan Ave or by mailing a check with their name, age, and shirt size to Walk A Mile, P.O Box 1249 Big Rapids MI 49307.
