LUBBOCK,TX- It was cold, windy and a little bit wet, but that didn't stop hundreds of men from taking off their boots and breaking out the high heels.

Saturday morning was the 7th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, men's march to stop violence against women.

It is the Voice of Hope's only fundraiser of the year and Director Leslie Timmons said she was happy to see so many people show up.

Firefighters, teachers and sheriff's showed up to race around the courthouse in their specially made red pumps.

Many women and K-9's joined in the fun too. 

District Attorney Matt Powell joins the fun every year, and while he said it is entertaining watching all the walkers, he said it never gets easier.
