Men wear high heels for good cause

Posted:

Saturday men in KOTA Territory slip on bright red heels - and strut their stuff through Rapid City.
 
Several dozen men managed to complete the painful one mile walk in red heels for the 2nd Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes working against violence fundraiser.

Men wore the high heels as a way to show the significance of a man's role in ending domestic violence.

Mary Corbine, Executive Director of WAVI says it's a fun way to promote a very serious topic.
 
 
"You know, domestic violence and sexual assault, they're not fun topics to talk about. They're not easy and this is a time that we can bring awareness to the community but yet have fun," says Corbine.
 
"And we're doing it by wearing heals! Trying to get a little attention, get a little attention for WAVI," says Michael Brown, a man strutting his stuff.
 
We don't know how much money was raised just yet, but Corbine did say one of the walkers raised more than one thousand dollars on their own.

Last year's event brought in nearly $20,000.
