Each year, an ever-increasing number of men, women and their families are joining Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®: The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a fun opportunity for men to educate the community about a very serious subject and to rally the community to take action to prevent sexualized violence.


Men (as well as women) from all “walks” of life are encouraged to participate in this fundraiser. By taking part in this event fathers, husbands, sons, brothers, co-workers, and friends demonstrate that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making our community a safer place.


Rape Crisis Intervention Service of Carroll County (RCIS) is a private, non-profit agency serving Carroll County, Maryland, since 1978. RCIS provides free counseling and support services to victims of sexual violence and their families. We also offer prevention education programs and professional training in order to eliminate sexual violence through education and advocacy.


Registration is now open at www.walkamilecc.org.
