Men Walk in High Heels for Good Cause
Rupert, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Dozens of men showed up to support the Mini Cassia Haven of Hope Shelter at the walk a mile in her shoes fundraiser in Rupert. The participants raised money and had to walk a mile around Rupert in high heels.
"This event's not only raising money for the shelter but also promoting domestic violence awareness," said Pam Harris, Director of the Mini Cassia Shelter.
This event is to help us bring awareness to our community and to all of the people around so that we know that it is not ok to have domestic violence in our homes. Domestic violence is not just a problem for victims, but also a significant risk for Police Officers.
"The reason I am wearing the black band on my badge is to honor those officers that were killed responding to violence calls which unfortunately is the most violent of killer for law enforcement is going to disturbance callers," said Dan Bristol, Heyburn Police Chief.
One victim of domestic violence told us why she was there to support the shelter.
"Well I want to support awareness and domestic violence is not right. I was a victim of domestic violence and I'm lucky to be here," said Trisha Montano.
Men and women, both coming together, to try and stop domestic violence.
