YWCA prepares for domestic violence fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - The YWCA of San Diego needs your help to raise awareness of a very serious issue: domestic violence.

On Wednesday, volunteers spent the day sorting and cleaning hundreds of pairs of high-heeled shoes for the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraising event.

For the past three years, men from all walks of life have put on heels to raise money for the YWCA's Becky's House domestic violence program.

"It's a very whimsical, lighthearted way of looking at a really serious issue of domestic violence. So we're hoping to see a lot of people wearing the shoes, bringing some attention to a really serious issue," Becky's House Manager Caity Meader said.

With the state cutting funding to the YWCA's domestic violence programs, your help is needed more than ever.

The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event takes place on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. in downtown San Diego.
