The Susan B. Anthony Project’s 4th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The Virtual Experience will take place May 17–28.

The popular event that has been held in the center of Litchfield will be held virtually again this year due to ongoing restrictions for in-person events.

Registration for the event is available online at The official kick-off and opening ceremony will take place on May 17 and will be followed by fundraising activities and challenges, culminating with a finish line ceremony on May 28.

Participants can choose from two registration levels, both of which include use of the iconic red high heels which they can wear to walk a literal mile, or simply for fun photo opportunities to raise awareness.

In addition to walking and fundraising as an individual or as part of a team, those interested in supporting the event and Susan B. Anthony Project’s services are invited to sponsor the walk, place an ad in the event program, purchase merchandise, pledge a walker, make a general donation, or spread the word about the event and raise awareness about the issues of domestic and sexual violence in our community.

The walk is being sponsored by agency sponsors Dymax Corporation and Webster Bank, as well as by event sponsors A Healing Trail Wellness Center; Karpas Strategies; King, King, and Associates CPAs; O&G Industries; Putnam Tennis Courts; RAR Excavating and Building; St. Paul’s Lodge No. 11; Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation; Torrington Savings Bank; and Twenty2 Wallpaper. Sponsorship opportunities are still available to interested businesses and individuals.
