Puyallup city officials to wear high heels, raise awareness about domestic violence issues during Meeker Days
Puyallup’s annual Meeker Days will include a charitable event to benefit sexual assault resources in Pierce County.
The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser, part of an international movement designed to raise awareness about domestic violence issues, will be June 22 at 10 a.m. with an associated 5K fun run starting at 9 a.m., according to a city press release.
Last year, Puyallup City Council members participated in the Tacoma-Pierce County event where participants wear high heels and walk a mile — literally — in women’s shoes. This year, Puyallup is hosting a local offshoot of the march.
