A group of men donned some unusual footwear to support a cause.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, a fund that raises money to help victims of sexual abuse, took place at St. Ambrose University on Wednesday, April 17.

In heels or stilettos the group walked 12 laps in an effort to support women who have been abused.

“Women who have been sexually assaulted could always use support where ever you are,” said sophomore, Lindsey Mack. “It’s not hard to show your support and walking just a mile in their shoes shows something.”

The event has been a nationwide effort since 2001.
