FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) August 19, 2019
In celebration of 40 years of service to victims and survivors and to raise awareness to issues that have stayed in the dark for far too long, Heartly House is proud to announce Rock The 40th, a new twist on the ‘Walk a Mile in Their Shoes’ annual event. To celebrate the 40th anniversary, this year’s event has been transformed to include food trucks, craft beer, and a concert at Carroll Creek Amphitheatre.
Heartly House is also pleased to announce that in addition to being a participant, walkers can fundraise with their own teams that support them in the walk. There will also be prizes for both the top fundraising team and individual.

- An easy stroll down Frederick’s Historic Market Street to raise awareness and support Heartly House clients
- A swag bag and t-shirt

For those who cannot participate in the Walk, concert-only tickets can be purchased for $5.00.
