Spring has officially sprung! And you know what that means - it's time for spring cleaning! If you have any old shoes that you no longer want to clog up your closet, toss them in the designated collection bins distributed throughout your dorm building! Running Club is collecting and donating any unwanted shoes to God's Love so that they can be reused by those who need them. This event will occur during the last week of April (4/24 - 4/30). Collection bins will be distributed throughout Guadalupe Hall, St. Charles, Borromeo, and Trinity. Clean-up will take place at the end of the day on 4/30.
And don't forget to join us on Fridays at 2 pm outside the HAC for a run in the great weather.

A Walk in Her Shoes
04/27/2022 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
What is Put Yourself in Her Shoes™
Since 2001, men, women, and their families worldwide have joined the award-winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®: The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. It is a dramatic opportunity to raise awareness in your community about the serious causes, effects, and remediations of men's sexualized violence.
What are Walk Events?
Why men in women’s high-heeled shoes? We ask men to walk in women's high-heeled shoes to actively confront gender stereotypes and expectations. In this space of playful confrontation and openness, it's possible to reveal and consider many of the underlying causes of men's sexualized violence with less defensiveness and denial.
Why Men in Women’s Shoes?
An old saying: "You can't understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." To get people listening, learning, and talking, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® education Events organize around men walking one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's an experience around which many education, self-reflection, and change happen. It's impressive to see such a visually stunning public statement of listening, learning, allyship, and commitment. It's an engaging event that gets the community talking about sex and gender biases, gender identity, gender relations, and men's sexualized violence.
Details about the Event:
We are aiming for five teams of 5 men from campus. Heels are encouraged but not required. Teams will need “coaches,” and professors would be a great place to start looking for a “coach.” This event is a fundraiser! Each team will need to reach out to a local business and get a sponsorship. Sponsors must give at least $50, which breaks down to $10 per person. The particular company can purchase ads for $1 a word, and they also may provide banners to be held by the players, which are $5. The team with the most fundraised money will win a prize and the team with the fastest race time.
We will have challenges that all relay runners must complete, including running in heels (shared among team members to limit the cost), putting on beaded necklaces, making and wearing a sexual assault awareness ribbon, and putting on a fun bright colored wig for a picture taken by our digital marketing specialist, McKenna Kindel. Doing this will ensure that Carroll has total control of the PR that comes from this event, making it very clear that this is a sexual assault awareness event.
Team registration is due April 20th, and the event's location is TBD!
