Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®

Here come the men in heels!  Their mission?  To stomp out sexual violence by walking a mile in her shoes.

2014walkamilelogo largeEvery year in April, YWCA Bradford’s Victims’ Resource Center raises awareness of sexual violence with the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, a men’s march against rape, sexual assault and gender violence. This upcoming year’s event will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 and the walk starts at 6:00 pm.

Every two minutes, another American is sexually assaulted. As a community, we cannot stand by without taking action. We are asking you to consider a sponsorship so, together, we can do our part to end sexual violence.

Walk A Mile in Her Shoes

Into our fifth year in 2018, this annual event raises funds for sexual assault services. We recognize the importance of men’s involvement in raising awareness to this critical issue, and to the power that men hold in helping to stem and prevent incidents of sexual assault. We are honored to walk arm in arm with our brothers in solidarity!




Centennial Tea party and Fashion Show

Held at a local historic home, guests of the event saw not only the historical fashions of the last 100 years, but also learned what the YW was doing during each decade and fashion era.  This was an amazing event with  wonderful decor, fabulous food and even better company!  We still hear from people who relish their memories of our Tea Party!


Lunch in the Square

In August 2015, we celebrated our 100th with cake at Lunch in the Square.  Cake and cupcakes were provided by Julie’s Cake Creations, and handed out as a compliment to all those who have stood by the YWCA in thick and thin!

Leader Luncheon 2015

In 2015, we celebrated past YWCA leaders who paved the way for us to do the hard work we do every day. The YWCA has a history of quiet perseverance, of women who lead and do and serve with little fanfare, and this particular year we wanted to shout in gratitude and acknowledgement for all they have done to make our paths smoother and easier.

YWCA’s Boo! Day Celebration

In 2015, the YWCA Celebrated its 100th Anniversary.  With an event every month from April through October, we celebrated 100 years of service, 100 years of community building and support, 100 years of empowerment, 100 years of compassion, and 100 years of strength and leadership.  Take a walk down memory lane with us and check out some of the pictures below.
