#133: St. Margaret's "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes"

Sometimes just being to say "I've been there" is what counts.  That's the spirit motivating the event "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes", a fundraiser to benefit St. Margaret's House.  This non-profit assists women and children in economic poverty, and this annual winter walk is a way for the community to show solidarity with those who rely on public transportation and their own two feet to get around town.

Teams and individuals have raised money to be sponsored to walk a mile on this Sunday afternoon, and these funds help sustain the different programs and services St. Margaret's offers.  It's not too late to register, and just coming out to the event is a sign of support.  In addition, the center will be open afterward for a community reception, so you can meet some of the people who are part of this place.  The gratitude you'll feel for a place to warm up may make you think twice about those who are left out in the cold.

Where: the walk starts at the County City Building, corner of Jefferson & Lafayette, and ends at St. Margaret's House, 117 N. Lafayette Blvd.
When: 2:30 PM (registration opens at 1:30)
