YWCA of San Diego County will present the 10th annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®” fundraising walk. Men, alongside women and children, are invited to walk a mile in heels through downtown San Diego County to increase awareness of domestic violence in the community and help end the pervasive issue once and for all.
Ken Davenport is the CEO of Mission Edge and has helped organizations such as Habitat for Humanity San Diego, The Honor Foundation, and Summit for Stem Cell. Ken will walk us through his journey and share his story of building Mission Edge into an indispensable part of San Diego.
