DVCC Walk In Her Shoes

Posted: Updated:

"You don't know what somebody's life is like until you walk a mile in their shoes" - this saying gave the Minot Domestic Violence Crisis Center an idea for encouraging men to speak up during sexual assault awareness month.

Today, Minot's DVCC held their 8th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event.

The Domestic Violence Crisis Center puts on the walk to encourage men to raise their voices - and heels - against sexual assault.

About 40 men from the area came to the mall to pick out a pair of decorated high heels to walk around in today.

One coordinator says that it's a lighthearted way to support a problem that is rising with the booming area.

(Kari Heringer, Volunteer Coordinator) "With our population growing, our numbers are going up. And I think it's important for everybody to stay safe and recognize that it's a problem and to help to something about it. It's a way for us to connect to the community and for us all to work on that issue."

All proceeds made today will go to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Minot.

    Crews working to keep the fire contained and those keeping people a safe distance away certainly didn't go hungry today.
