Rosemary Beach Foundation Presents 3rd Annual Walk Her Way

posterMen, women and children of all ages are invited to don high heels during the annual WALK HER WAY event at Rosemary Beach today, June 13th at 6:30 PM.

But Walk Her Way isn’t just a fun family-friendly event. It carries a serious message about respect and healthy relationships, and aims to raise awareness about domestic violence. The walk will benefit Shelter House, the domestic and sexual violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton counties, and Rosemary Beach Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting cultural, educational and other charitable activities in Rosemary Beach and Walton County.

Led by a New Orleans style brass band, walkers will stroll around the square in Rosemary Beach as they show off their favorite pair of high heels.

Will you walk in wedges? Strut in stilettos? Prance in pumps? Whatever your preference, sign up now to Walk Her Way.

Decorate your shoes to reflect your style and personality. Team registrations are encouraged, and awards will be given for the team that raises the most money. But the good times don’t stop when the walk ends. Stick around for the awards ceremony and after-party. There’s a FREE public concert featuring Village Brass Band, presented by The Merchants of Rosemary Beach.

Shelter House’s Clothesline Project — a touching exhibit that allows adult and child victims of domestic violence to tell their story through words and art — will be on display in Rosemary Beach on the day of the walk.

“Shelter House served more than 6,500 women, children and men in Okaloosa and Walton counties last year,” said Shelter House Executive Director Michelle Sperzel. “Events like Walk Her Way allow us to spread the word to new audiences about our services and help us raise funds for critical services such as our 24/7 hotline, emergency shelter, support groups and child advocacy.”

Advance registration is $30 for adults and $10 for children under 12 and includes a t-shirt. Registration the day of the walk will be an additional $5 per person from 5 pm to 6:15 pm.
