YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

Mark stands with YWCA Interim Executive Director Gloria Lau prior to the start of the "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes." Mark sports a pair of red Kenneth Cole Reaction sandals for this event.

Mark joined Mayor Billy Kenoi, Police Chief Harry Kubojiri, Fire Chief Darryl Oliveira and County Prosecutor Jay Kimura along with men from all walks of life in a march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence.

Now, more than ever, as financial distress mounts, the level of domestic violence is also increasing in our island community. All ages and income levels are affected with victims in Hawaii ranging from 2 months to 96 years old. Rich and poor alike, no one is immune from sexual assault.

Those in need of assistance should contact the YWCA Sexual Assault Crisis Hotline at 935-0677.
