Slip on or lace up your favorite purple shoes and join us for Take Steps In Their Shoes!

Walk with us for just over 2 miles through the South End of Burlington while wearing purple shoes to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Bid on silent auction items to support our services and programs.

Listen as those affected by domestic violence tell their stories. (Interested in telling your story? Let us know. NOTE: this is not an open mic event.) 

Encourage friends and family to register, or create a team and take steps together.

The first 100 individual participants to raise $500 will earn an event t-shirt. The top fundraising team will earn a special team trophy. If you can't attend our event, but would still like to support us, please feel free to donate to a participant's fundraising page on FirstGiving.
