Men in Pumps: Walking for a cause

COOS COUNTY, Ore. -- Men, women and children walked a mile in high heels on Wednesday, to help raise awareness for violence against women.

Hundreds were in attendance for the first annual Walk a Mile In Her Shoes event, that took place at Southwestern Oregon Community College.

Some walked in support of friends and family who have been victims of gender violence, others simply walked to support a great cause.

Event planners were pleased with the turnout, and say they expect an even bigger turnout next year.
