Walk a Mile in Her Shoes started in 2001 with a small group of men stumbling along in high heels to raise awareness about sexual violence. The event now boasts thousands of participants across the world to raise money for the education and prevention of rape, gender violence, and sexual assault. Over the weekend, Heels.com sponsored the first annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event in Charlotte at popular brewery, Noda Brewing Company. Proceeds from the event were donated to Safe Alliance, a local organization providing resources and support to women to help them find healing and a safe refuge from crisis.
