South Georgia men to wear high heels for a good cause

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some south Georgia men are getting ready to strut their stuff in high heels.

At Saturday's Walk a mile in her shoes event, dozens of men will strap on heels and walk or run to support the Lily Pad, and their domestic violence programs.

The fundraiser will start at 10 a.m. The lily pad provides services 24/7 for adults and children who are victims of abuse.

"This is a nationally recognized fundraiser. People all over the country participate in this fundraiser and what it does is bring awareness to victims of sexual assault," says Interim Director of Lily Pad, Mary Martinez.

Lily Pad serves about 120 adults and 400 young people a year.
