- Pre-Registration: Walkers are encouraged to register online prior to the date of the Walk at a rate of $40 per adult; $30 per adult for teams of 5 or more; and $20 per student (with valid student ID). Register and/or create a team online here.

CHECK-IN: Registration and Check-in will open at 9:00am. The official welcome and announcements will start at 10:00am. The Walk will begin at approximately 10:30am. We encourage you to arrive early to have time to register/check in, pick up your Walker number, bag, T-shirt and Shoes, to organize and photograph your team and to participate in Heel-Walking Demonstrations!
SHOES: High-heeled shoes will only be provided for paid, registered walkers (and registered sponsors). Shoes will not be provided for individuals registering for free.
We only have shoes in MALE SIZES from 6 to 16. We do not have half sizes. Please note that if your exact size is not available we will do our best to provide the closest, slightly larger size available.
Walkers are not required to wear high-heeled shoes but are encouraged to do so. You are welcome to bring your own shoes. Be creative - your shoes do not need to be red high-heels but they should be colorful and fun!
Please note that only male walkers wearing high-heeled shoes are eligible for the Walker Awards!
SHIRTS: Each PAID registered walker (and sponsor) will receive one Haven Walk a Mile 2014 T-shirt at check in. We will do our best to honor your size while supplies last. Requests will be filled in order of registration receipt. (We’re sorry but we do not have SMALL size T-shirts).
DONATIONS & FUNDRAISING: Walkers are encouraged to raise funds and can personalize a fundraising page online at First Giving. All funds raised from the event will support the important work of Haven Women’s Center.
Walker Awards will be presented to the team and individual who raise the most funds! Tax Information: Registrations are not tax deductible but all donations are and go directly to support the work of Haven Women’s Center.
WHAT TO WEAR: You should dress in casual, colorful clothing. We encourage walkers to wear their Walk a Mile T-shirts. If you are part of a team, we encourage you to dress alike in similar team colors or uniforms (this is a great opportunity to show the community that your team is taking a stand against sexual violence).
WHAT TO BRING:
- Signs to carry with your team name or with slogans against domestic violence and sexual assault
- Extra socks and bandaids in case your shoes are too small or irritate your feet!
- A light sweater or jacket as it might still be cool in the morning; - sun block in case it’s a sunny morning (you might want to put extra lotion on your legs and feet if you’re showing off your heels!)
- Extra money in case you want to buy food, refreshments or merchandise at the Walk or at the after party celebration.
PARKING: Limited street side parking is available in Downtown Modesto. Walkers are encouraged to park in one of the nearby garages.
