MADISON (WKOW) -- In one month, men from around Rock County will be sliding into high heels. It's for YWCA Rock County's annual "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event.
The annual event to help in fight to end domestic violence will be in Janesville on Friday, September 27. It begins at the Pontiac Convention Center with registration and shoe fitting beginning at 3:30 p.m. The one-mile walk begins at 5:00 p.m. with a dinner reception directly following.
Proceeds from Walk a Mile in Her Shoes directly benefit YWCA Rock County's Alternatives to Violence program, which includes the agency's 33-bed domestic violence shelter. Proceeds also benefit YWCA Rock County's Transitions for Women program, which helps single mothers with a history of domestic violence find sustainable employment and affordable housing for their families.

Jon Wangerin, one of the event chairmen, and Crystal Reinoso, a YWCA board member, will join us on 27 News at 5 on Tuesday.
