Fun event, serious purpose

To the editor:

Chief Wynn's Sept. 2 letter on the annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event (Sept. 15) was spot on. This year's walk will be my third, and while it's a fun, festive gathering, there's a seriousness underlying the party. Yes, abuse and violence toward women happen every day.

So please donate to the Elizabeth Freeman Center as it works to give asylum to the victims of this epidemic.

I'll be there in my EMT uniform and four-inch stilettos. See you there, chief!
