Registration for this year's fundraiser for an area women's shelter that aids in the recovery of people who were victims of domestic or sexual violence is underway. The event is open for men and women to walk.

The 2021 "Walk A Mile In Her Shoes" fundraiser is Saturday, June 19. Participants of the walk will be meeting at the Twin Falls Visitor Center, at 2015 Nielsen Point Place. Check-in is at 11 A.M., and the walk starts at noon. Voices Against Violence once again is behind the planning of this year's forth annual event.

The event, which encourages and welcomes the participation of both men and women, has been taking place in Idaho for more than 10 years. This is an international walk that raises money to support survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. To register, click this link.
