    NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - Members of the 107th Airlift Wing assembled at the fitness testing area here to “walk a mile” in observance of April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The “Walk a Mile” Awareness event was organized by the 107th Sexual Assault Prevention office to highlight the wing’s commitment to eliminate incidents of sexual assault.

    “When we all get involved we will move the Air Force closer to a culture free of sexual assault. Sexual Assault Awareness Month is our way to extend this message.” said Col. John Higgins, 107th AW commander.

    Participants enjoyed a rare warm, sunny April afternoon as they awaited the official start of the walk.

    “It’s symbolic. I think it’s symbolic the fact that our family gathered together to say we’re going to take a stand against this.” said Col. Robert Kilgore before signaling the begin of the walk.

    The wing also hosted various topical film screenings, events and table displays throughout the month to raise sexual assault awareness among unit members.
