It has raised more funds to ensure survivors have the resources they need to be safe and thrive. We wanted to capture the magic, if only for a moment.

Frank Baird created Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in 2001. What started out as a small group of men daring to totter around a park has grown to become a world-wide movement with tens of thousands of men raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.
