The Inaugural Mile In Her Shoes Walk 2018
In it’s Inaugural year, The Mile In Her Shoes Walk was established by THEMKGPROJECT, a non-profit organization in Dallas, TX.
THEMKGPROJECT - also established in 2018, was founded by Ashley & Eric Goolsby, in honor of their daughter Maddison Goolsby, who was born with the absence of her left eye and severe vision impairment in her right eye.
Maddison was born with Anophthalmia and Microphthalmia, a rare and unexpected mix of developmental birth conditions, leaving her with less than half of her vision.
The Mile In Her Shoes Walk is a 1 Mile Walk that allows it’s participants to “Walk a Mile” in Maddison’s shoes. From start to finish, walkers will wear an eyepatch on either their left or right eye, and walk 5280 feet to the finish line, the same exact way Maddison would - with half their vision or less.
Through the walk, the MIHSW + THEMKGPROJECT, hope to inspire the stimulation of study and understanding of anophthalmia and microphthalmia, as well as to provide support to the individuals, families, and communites affected by these conditions.
