16th Annual SafeWalk to be virtual September 30th – October 2

The Center for Empowerment and Education, formerly the Women’s Center will hold its annual SafeWalk virtually the weekend of September 30th – October 2, 2022. SafeWalk is chaired by Ridgefield resident, Kathy Graham and is The Center’s premier event to unite the community in our vision to end domestic violence and raise much-needed funds to support our no cost programs and services. 

Individuals and teams are encouraged to walk, run and fundraise from the comfort of their own home/communities. Choose a time anytime that weekend that works with your schedule, hop on a treadmill, walk around your neighborhood, or meet up with a group of friends at a large public space, don your SafeWalk t-shirt (included with registration fee) and hashtag your photos to #safewalk2022. People of all ages are encouraged to participate and create their own personal peer-to-peer fundraising page to encourage family and friends to sponsor them with a donation. You can visit www.thecenterct.org to get started!

Back by popular demand, there is also an option to register your pet. Pet registration includes a bandana that matches the t-shirt. Participants are encouraged to walk with their pets and send The Center the photos at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
