The 5th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® will take off with motorcycles, the mayor, chairwoman Cindy Henry and two important people who helped establish this event in 2007, Dr. Michael and Liz Schatzlein. The Schatzleins are coming from Nashville, TN specifically for this event.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an event to show public support of survivors and raise community awareness of sexual assault by walking a one-mile course in bright red high heels.

Host Curtis Smith from Indiana's NewsCenter will introduce various speakers and dignitaries and Mayor Henry will make a proclamation. Then, the motorcyclists will kick-off the walk with a procession in front of the walkers as they cross Clinton Street. Derby Brats will be stationed along the route to direct and cheer-on the walkers.
