Walk In Her Shoes Event Has Frat Boys In Heels For A Good Cause [VIDEO]
A bunch of fraternity brothers from Western Kentucky University donned red high heel shoes recently, and yes, walked in them, to raise money and create awareness for sexual abuse and violence against women. Hit the jump to check out the CNN report on the event and hear what they had to say.
The event was part of the Walk a Mile In Her Shoes initiative, whose goals are, “to help link, coordinate and publicize worldwide efforts to organize Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Events for raising awareness and funds for sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation.” They also say they, “are here to inform the world of the valuable contributions men are making to stop sexualized violence.”
At the WKU event, the men were walking to raise funds for the non-profit sexual assault and abuse counseling center, Hope Harbor. Take a look at how it all went down.
They were able to raise $1,000 for the cause and, as it seems, gain a new found respect for those who wear heels on a more regular basis.
