WAM is an international event (www.walkamileinhershoes.org) signified by a men’s march in heels, but the event welcomes men and women to participate in a fun-filled afternoon for Central Florida community members to raise awareness about domestic abuse in Central Florida. WAM was brought to Harbor House by co-chairs Randy Ross and Mary Tiffany, who are domestic violence survivors.
