The Fifth Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event raises awareness of sexual violence in a humorous, attention-getting way. From 8 to 10 a.m. May 27, during the Athens Old Fiddlers Contest and Reunion, a slew of men take a stand for victims by walking or running a mile in red high-heeled shoes at the square in downtown Athens. The event is sponsored by the East Texas Crisis Center, a nonprofit agency that provides services to victims and survivors across five counties in East Texas.
