Walk a Mile in her Shoes on April 30
On Saturday, April 30, Fairfield Prep will participate in Walk a Mile her in Her Shoes—an awareness walk that takes place in Fairfield from 8:30-10. Violence in any capacity is never acceptable and we are joining with:
• Fairfield University

• Fairfield’s Police Chief Gary McNamara
• Father Simisky, S.J., and Dr. Bob Perrotta
• Prep’s Guidance Department
• Administrators and Teachers
• Members of Prep’s Swim Team

to raise awareness for the White Ribbon Campaign. High heels are optional!
White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
Starting in 1991, men were asked to wear white ribbons as a pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Since then the White Ribbon Campaign has spread to over 60 countries around the world.
Please join us! To register for the walk, please follow this link: http://cfjbpt.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1153479 Click Register and the team name is Fairfield Prep. There is no charge for this event and we encourage you to wear Fairfield Prep Spirit Wear. Families are welcome! We will meet on the green next to the Mill Plain Starbucks in Fairfield around 8:30. The walk will end at the Town Green around 10am.
To promote the walk, we will have a Prep Pride Day on Friday, April 29. Students will be allowed to wear any Prep Spirit Wear top with no tie, but follow regular uniform requirements for pants and shoes.
