Walk a Mile in Their Shoes and ROCK Heartly House’s 40th Anniversary!
Rock the 40th is a new twist on our annual event known as Walk a Mile in Their Shoes. In celebration of 40 years of service to victims and survivors and to raise awareness to issues that have stayed in the dark for far too long, this year we will ROCK Heartly House’s 40th Anniversary! Our annual Walk a Mile awareness event will be capped off with a ROCKING concert, food trucks and local craft brews at the Carroll Creek Amphitheatre.
Walk registration is $40.00 for adults and $10.00 for full time students and includes:
- An easy stroll down Frederick’s Historic Market Street to raise awareness and support the clients we serve at Heartly House
- A swag bag and t-shirt
- Rocking music – will start up where the Rocking Walk ends – at the Carroll Creek Amphitheater
- Food and beverage – local craft breweries and food trucks will be on hand to keep everyone fed and watered
- And did we mention… the music?
The need for our services is great and growing.
Consider that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be/has been sexually abused by the age of 18. Consider that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 14 men will be the victim of intimate partner abuse in their lifetime. Consider that the demand for clinical counseling increased by 40% last year.
For victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking and child abuse, the journey to healing starts here, at Heartly House. We are the only organization in Frederick County offering compressive support to victims and survivors including a 24-hour hotline, crisis intervention, group and individual counseling services, emergency shelter, medical accompaniment, legal representation and community education and outreach. Our services are confidential and free of charge.
As an independent 501 (c)3 nonprofit, Heartly House depends on community support to meet the growing need and over the years, our community has been AMAZING! Can we count on you?
