The Women Helping Women West Maui Task Force will kick off October Domestic Violence Awareness Month with its seventh annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event at Lahaina Cannery on Saturday, Sept.

29, 2018.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon and has been expanded to include men, women and their families.

Participants are invited to Walk a Mile in high heel shoes – to help raise awareness about the causes and effects of domestic violence against women, and to find solutions for ending the abuse.

This family-friendly event is for all ages and features live music provided by Fred’s Garage, a photo booth, a keiki bouncy castle, food vendors and more. There will also be a drawing for a $200 cash prize, as well as awards for the best costume and for the walker with the most money pledged.
