Walking a mile in her shoes

FIRST PHOTO: Men don’t let their unfamiliarity with high-heel shoes keep them from taking laps at the Outlets of Maui on Saturday morning while taking part in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser in Lahaina. The fifth annual men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and domestic violence was a fundraiser for Women Helping Women’s programs to help victims of those crimes cover basic expenses like food, gas, diapers and eyeglasses. The walk challenges men to walk a mile in high heels and is part of an international event. It is held each in year in conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
