Law enforcement to put on heels in 'Walk a Mile' event

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Some tough men who work in law enforcement will strap on red heels tomorrow and "walk a mile in her shoes."

Thomas County Deputies and some other area law enforcement will join the international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence.

The event is the biggest annual fundraiser for The Treehouse, which is a children's advocacy center in Thomasville.

It's actually pretty hilarious," said Volunteer Medical Director Beth Greer. "Some of them are actually good at it. You can tell they've practiced. Some run and others dress up. Some of them get paid to dress up. Last year we had a man in a KISS costume; men in wigs. Some struggle to make it the whole way."

Registration for the walk starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Brookwood school track. The event will also host a 1 mile fun run and a 5k race.
