Men In High Heels Walking For Charity

Although not the first example, men in Calgary, Alberta, walked nearly a mile in high heels to raise money for charity.  The men raised more than $143,000 to support the YWCA Crisis Housing Fund for woman and children who have been victims of domestic violence.

The spectacle has attracted headline attention, and locally became a viral story.  This would suggest that the concept could be leveraged around the world.

However, I quickly discovered that this concept has been used around the world in similar, small fund rasiers.  For example, here are articles from: Utah and Milwaukee.

I am sure there are even more examples, but the point is that no one has really stepped it up to make this a national charity or something with a lot more marketing behind it.
