Men will take a walk in heels for the Crisis Centre

It can be hard to understand what someone is going through unless you’ve been able to take a walk in their shoes. The Cayman Crisis Centre is taking that same idea and using it to raise awareness and funds.

The Walk in Her Shoes is a fundraising event, that will see men donning high heels. The men will be obligated to walk five laps along Market Street, in Camana Bay. For every $100 dollars they raise, they can knock off a lap, with the mandate of having to do at least one lap. Crisis Centre volunteer Michelle Lockwood says “It’s playful way for men to raise awareness of the very serious issue of domestic abuse.”

One of the men who will putting on heels is Ronnie Hughs. The long time supporter of the Crisis Centre says “anything to raise money for the Crisis Centre is good…it was a no brainer.”

There will be prizes for the best dressed, best heels and best walk. The Crisis Centre does have some heels, in a size fit for a man’s feet.

Funds raised from the event will goes towards operations costs of the centre.
