Staff and students invited to Walk a Mile in THEIR Shoes

September 21, 2017

Men in need of shoes should contact Dr. Gee

The new Men of Strength Club is seeking participants for the upcoming Walk a Mile in THEIR Shoes event on Wednesday, October 4 beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Quincy Green, as part of the Finlandia It’s On Us event series.

The spirited walk will spark conversations about gender relations regarding the difficult topic of sexual violence. Participants are responsible to acquire shoes of the opposite gender to wear during the mile walk of awareness. Dr. Richard Gee will be placing a collective order for mens’ high heel shoes on Monday, September 25 at 3 p.m. Those interested in having high heels for the walk should immediately contact him with one’s name, shoe size, shirt size and $30. Participants who successfully complete the walk during the It’s On Us week of action will receive a t-shirt, honoring that they were “man enough to walk a mile in her shoes.”

To sign up with Dr. Gee, please email him at richard.gee@finlandia.edu
