Yep, that’s me. Three over from the right. I walked a full mile in those bad boys last Saturday.
The picture above is of me and my Walk a Mile in Her Shoes team members. Walk A Mile in Her Shoes is an international event in which men embrace the opportunity to raise awareness about the serious causes and effects of sexualized violence. I joined over 500 other Sacramento, CA business leaders, elected officials, students and more to run, walk, and/or limp a full mile in high heels shoes.
The event was a great success. We raised a total of over $200,000 as a group. I also have a new found respect for women who walk in high heels shoes on a regular basis!
THANK YOU so much to everyone who contributed and supported me in the walk. It means a lot to me – and your contribution is going to a GREAT cause.
