General Event Planning Tips
Develop and stick to a realistic timeline. We have supplied one for you at the end of this section to facilitate your planning process.
Delegate . . . Delegate . . . Delegate. There are a lot of details and tasks involved in planning a Walk. We need dedicated people like you to continue working to end sexualized violence. Do yourself, and your event, a favor and don’t try to do everything yourself.
Integrate media, volunteer recruitment, and fundraising into every public education effort. Imagine everything that can go wrong and plan a solution to each potential problem in advance.
