Walking the Walk

Walk a mile

On September 12, dozens of men will gather in Bloomfield to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®, giving these volunteers a chance to show off their gams and raise money for Pittsburgh Action Against Rape. The event is being organized by Camille Goleb, with whom we “talked the talk.”
