WKU’s Heel-toppers

Mar 22, 2012

COLONY (Western Kentucky) — It’s not often a group of college men dawn a pair of 4-inch red pumps without getting strange looks. This week, the men of the WKU colony tossed on heels for “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” but lets be honest….they still got funny looks.

In an article from The Herald:
The walk began on Normal Street in front of the Chi Omega house and went to the top of the Hill and down Avenue of Champions, cutting through Downing University Center to end in Centennial Mall.

“[Walking in heels is] excruciating, but it felt good to do it for a good cause and to give exposure to female domestic violence,” Alpha Tau Omega junior Larry Lee said.

The walkers paid an entrance fee, which added to donations and sponsorships to raise money for Hope Harbor, a non-profit organization that offers support for women who have faced sexual abuse.

At the end of the walk, IFC president Brian Hartzell presented Hope Harbor with a $1,000 check.
