TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Voices Against Violence is preparing to hold their biggest fundraiser of the year, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is taking place all over the country on June 19., including in Twin Falls.

The event is a part of the International Men’s Movement to end violence against women.

People of all ages come to the visitor’s center wearing their highest high heels and walk across the Perrine Bridge and back to raise awareness about assault.

“We are a full service, anybody who is a victim of crime, the top three that we serve is domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, but we are not limited to that,” said Jessica Kaschmitter from Voices Against Violence.

The event begins at 11 a.m. on June 19., but registration is open now.
