They Walked a Mile in Her Shoes [VIDEO]

Teetering precariously atop the same styles of high heels that women have endured for decades, more than 100 men limped gamely through downtown Yakima — from Millennium Plaza to the Yakima County Courthouse and back — to call attention to sexual violence on Friday.

The local event, in its eighth year, was part of The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence.

Participants came from as far away as western Washington and Portland, Ore. Crowding the sidewalks, they chanted and carried anti-violence signs, drawing honks, applause and whistles of support from passing drivers and pedestrians.

Two came from KDBL’s Bull-Pen morning on-air crew — Rik Mikals and Cefus.

Rik suffered ankle distress early on and had to take off his striking red pumps, but Cefus — limping noticeably and leaning on friends by the end, endured the whole mile.

We’ll have more on this soon — tune in to the radio and watch this site.

Meantime, here’s Emily Maris explaining more about the walk.
