Adult Probation Officers Scott Scislo, Paul Cieslinski and Colin Meeker of the Sex Offender Unit, led a team donning glitter stilettos, patent leather and sling back heels in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event held by the Rape Crisis Center of Medina and Summit Counties.
Created in 2001 by Frank Baird, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® began as a small group of men daring to wear heels in the park and has grown to become a “world-wide movement raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.” Men are asked to literally “walk a mile in her shoes” and walk one mile in highheeled shoes.
Team members joining Probation Officers Scislo, Cieslinski, and Meeker making a difference are: Maria Meeker, Jessica Cieslinski, Stephanie Judson, Glorlena Harper, Kandi O’Connor, Tammy Keefer, Erin Mullins, Brian Crisan, Zak Brubakc, Nichole Gallante and Judge Amy Corrigall Jones.
The team earned the “Bronze Heel” trophy for their efforts in raising $3,293.00 for the Rape Crisis Center.
Congratulations to the 2012 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Team! We thank you for representing the Adult Probation Department and Common Pleas Court-General Division and making a difference in Summit County. You all make us proud!
