Thomasville, GA- It's not something you see everyday; grown men running in red high heels.
It's all part of the Treehouse Children's Advocacy Center's, 'Walk A Mile In Her Shoes' event.
Heather Stroh, a Forensic Nurse Examiner at the Treehouse and one of the event coordinators says folks can expect to see runners from all different walks of life come out.
"You're going to see District Attorneys, you're going to see law enforcement, you're going to see the fire department, you're going to see teachers, you're going to see doctors," she said.
On Saturday March 29th, they're inviting dozens of men to trade in their sneakers for red high heels. All of the money raised will go to the Treehouse to support victims of sexual or violent abuse.
"That money goes directly to them and their families," Stroh said. "They don't pay a dime for any of the services we provide, which include sexual assault exams, interviews and then beyond that we also provide them with medical treatment."
Some of the fine men from the Thomasville Police Department are already practicing for the big run.
"I've already got my outfit picked out," said Detective Joey Blackburn. "It's kind of a secret, so you'll have to come out and see if you can identify me when you get there."
There will also be a 5K and One Mile Fun Run for the kids.
Organizers say they can't promise it'll be easy, but they can promise it'll be fun and entertaining for the whole family.
