After going virtual last year, an annual fundraising walk that promotes awareness of gender violence returns in person next month. 

The 12th annual YWCA York's Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event is happening at PeoplesBank Park on Oct. 14.

Event organizers are inviting all adults and children to participate in a two-lap circuit of the baseball park. Participants are encouraged to wear high-heeled shoes for the walk. 

Registration at the baseball park starts at 4:30 p.m. There will be ballpark food served for free before an opening ceremony at 5:45 p.m., featuring a performance by YWCA York’s Temple Guard Drill Team, which will be followed by the walk around the ballpark. 

Proceeds from the event will benefit YWCA York's victim services.

People can register for the walk or donate by visiting classy.org/event/walk-a-mile-in-her-shoes/e350819 and can learn more at ywcayork.org.
