Around 45 to 50 men and supporters came out to the Midtown Mall in Whitecourt on June 5th to walk in some high heels.
The Walk A Mile event took place at the mall’s Twice is Nice store in support of Wellspring and gender-based violence initiatives, with this year’s focus on violence against women.
Participants also collected pledges prior to the high heels walk to show their support and raise money for the cause.

This was the fourth time Wellspring has put on the event, and the first time at the Midtown Mall location. They started it back up again this year after taking a break from the walk the last few years.
