The following was written by Sumner Mayor Dave Enslow:

Inspired by the old saying “you cannot understand a person’s experience until you have walked a mile in their shoes,” five of Sumner’s leaders will join courageous men across Pierce County to boldly walk in women’s shoes. Why? To help raise awareness about sexual assault and to raise funds for the Sexual Assault Center of Pierce County (SACPC).

SACPC provides victims with confidential, non-judgmental, victim-centered services, including therapists who help victims become “survivors”; educators who help children identify and avoid sexual assault and advocates who answer calls 24/7. This non-profit serves the entire county, including Sumner, and relies on donations for funding.

Sumner’s team, called the “Sumner Strutters,” includes team captain Chief Brad Moericke, City Administrator John Galle, Public Works Director Mike Dahlem, City Attorney Brett Vinson and Community Development Director Ryan Windish.
