“Walk a mile in their shoes” was taken literally a few weeks ago.  The men at Empire Construction participated in Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes at Forsyth Park this April.  The guys slipped on high heels and walked Forsyth Park for one mile — a symbolic recognition of the painful steps that sexual assault victims take on the road to recovery.  Sporting red stilettos and black pumps, the guys of Empire Construction helped the Rape Crisis Center raise funds and awareness.  

 

Walk A Mile In Her Shoes fundraisers are held nationally each year and have raised millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, providing assistance and education to those who need it most.  While strutting in oversized heels may seem silly, it helps bring a lighthearted spirit to the discussion and awareness of a dark problem in our society.

Empire Construction is proud to support local causes, standing by their values of community giving and raising awareness of important issues.
