STILETTO SPRING: A Dash To End Domestic Violence

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -  The "Stiletto Sprint" is a short dash to end domestic violence and support the Women's Healing and Empowering Network at the YWCA. This year, the dash is going to be on Saturday, June 21st and check-in begins at 9:30am in the River Park Square Atrium.

The dash is short and goes from Wall Street to Post Street, but this isn't just a typical dash. All participants are encouraged to dash in a pair of high heels as they take a stand against domestic violence and empower women. Yes...men...that means you too!

Registration is only $10 and includes a T-Shirt!

Participants can also enjoy a free scoop of ice cream at Ben and Jerry's on the 3rd floor of River Park Square from 10am - 12pm.

Polka Dot Pottery will also be donating a portion of the proceeds to Our Sister's Closet, a program of the YWCA, for anyone who stops by to paint a ceramic red shoe ($20) or a red shoe tile ($10) the week of the race.

There is also a need for professional clothing donations and those donations can be dropped off at Our Sister's Closet at any YWCA location.

For more information and to register for the dash, go to YWCASpokane.org.
