Timothy Dunn, Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, stresses the importance of the walk because “it takes fraternity men and puts them in a position to raise awareness about the cause of violence against women. I am proud of them for doing this because the only way to end violence is to educate other men, and give them the support and tools they need to chance and not commit acts of violence of women.”
Wristbands, which are required for admission to the game, are currently being sold in Reamer for $5 and will be sold on the night of the event for $7.
