Prior to The Center for Family Justice’s 10th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, Easton Police Chief Richard Doyle was honored at CFJ’s 11th Annual Breakfast & Award Ceremony on April 8. Deborah A. Greenwood, CFJ’s president and CEO, presented the award.
Doyle was recognized among the “First 100 Plus” as a leader “working to improve the lives of domestic violence survivors and their families.” He has had a long-standing commitment to the Center and participates in the walk.
“I would like to thank the Center for Family Justice for nominating me,” Doyle said. “I thank Deb Greenwood and the staff at CFJ for all the the support they give to the Easton Police Department and the other communities they serve.”
For the last two years, CFJ has held the event as a virtual fundraiser because of the Covid-19 pandemic. This year the event will be in-person in downtown Fairfield at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 23. Since 2012, CFJ has held Walk a Mile Her Shoes each April to raise funds for its mission and highlight the programs and services it offers to victims of sexual abuse and violence during what is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Awareness Month.
CFJ welcomes individuals and teams to walk to raise funds for this life-changing program and also take a stand against sexual violence and abuse in the six communities it serves. Walkers are encouraged to sign up as individuals or teams by visiting the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes page at CenterforFamilyJustice.org. Adult registration is $25, students are $10 and children 10 and under walk for free.
