Michiana men to wear red heels in support of domestic violence victims


Some Michiana men are hitting the streets in heels.

It's all for the fourth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in Downtown South Bend coming up in October.

Organizers say that real men wear red shoes, take care of their families and don't hit women.

It's a chance for those men to come out and show their support in the fight against domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

Former Indiana Governor Joe Kernan says there is too many instances of domestic violence and sexual assault across the country and in this community so, "it is so important to our community, so important to families and particularly women and young people in our community, so we're here to ask for your support."

All of the money raised at the walk will go to the Y-W-C-A's services for domestic violence and rape survivors.
