Domestic violence is not just a women's issue, so men put on their high heels and took to the track to raise awareness while walking a mile.
"We have a lot of supporters who are men who want to get the word out that domestic violence is not only a women's issue and this is a great, fun way for them to be involved," said Melanie Palmer, Executive Director at the Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter.
Men walked a mile in women's shoes.
"Our guys decided that the best thing we could do today was get out here and rock some red heels and make a difference," said participant Mike Gilbert.
He strutted his stuff around the track, and helped raise awareness for domestic violence prevention.
"We couldn't think of anything better to do on a cold Saturday morning than support the people in our community that are really reaching out and making a difference in the lives of people who need help."
More than 100 folks bundled up and braved the morning cold in Bentonville, all for the cause.
"We're a very giving community a very open community and a community that loves to support good causes and so we're happy to be the recipient of the support today," said Palmer.
She knows domestic violence is not just a women's issue, as the shelter provides services for men every year. So seeing guys squeeze into heels to show support, was priceless.
"As soon as I took them off I felt a whole lot shorter and I think I got a little bit of a workout I'm not accustomed to getting today. I can tell you this, I have a different respect for ladies who wear heels on a daily basis because I couldn't do it," said Gilbert.
