Local Super Hero Wears Red -- Meet Gabriel
6-year-old Gabriel has been visiting The Center on and off for about 4 years with his grandma, Cindy Brown. Cindy volunteers a lot at various organizations and Gabriel is always willing to lend a hand to help out.
On one of their recent visits, Gabriel saw our Executive Director Matt Huckabay wearing his 4” red high heels while practicing for the 12th Annual Walk a Mile in HER Shoes Challenge.
Gabriel told his grandma, “I wanna walk in those shoes!” When Cindy asked him why he wanted to walk in the shoes, Gabriel replied, “I want to walk to keep everyone safe!”
So, Gabriel has donned his high heels and red cape to raise funds and awareness about sexual assault in our community. His grandma has been posting on Facebook and Gabriel talks to everyone he meets about his mission to “keep everyone safe.” Once someone donates to his Superhero Fund, Gabriel puts their name on a red Super Man cape! “They are MY heroes!” says Gabriel.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and The Center will hold its annual Sexual Assault Awareness March on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Gabriel will be joining our Executive Director Matt Huckabay and walking a full mile in his red high heels down Placerville’s Historic Main Street with Matt Huckabay and many other brave men.
Gabriel and Matt have set a goal to raise $3,000 for The Center to help victims of sexual assault in our community! Your support is vital!
Gabriel is walking a mile in The Center's Walk a Mile in HER Shoes Challenge on Saturday, April 26th to raise awareness and fund for victims of sexual assault. To donate to Gabriel's Super Hero Fund go to www.TheCenterNow.org
So donate to Matt and Gabriel’s Super Hero Fund and get your name on his cape!
