Men don heels for domestic violence awareness

July 3, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Men in Wisconsin and around the country strapped on high heels and endured the pain, all for a good cause. The men are a part of a national movement to raise money and call attention to domestic violence against women.

In La Crosse, Wis., dozens of men attempted to hold banners while balancing themselves in red pumps, which were probably a few sizes too small.

Proceeds from Friday's walk in La Crosse benefit the YWCA and a local hospital that supports victims of domestic abuse.
