It’s time to dust off those high heels. Exactly one month from Tuesday, men will slip on their high heels to help raise money and awareness for issues of family violence.
The international march will be held October 19 at San Jacinto Plaza.
For the sixth year, walking proudly in his high heels, is Kenny Niemann. He’s been one of the top fundraisers for the event. Niemann says he has three sisters and they’re his inspiration for getting involved.
“We’re supporting the Independence House in El Paso,” Niemann said. “Supporting women that are coming out of bad domestic situations, it makes me just really happy that my sisters didn’t have to go through that. I want to give back to the women who are going through that.”
Niemann made it a personal goal to raise $7,000 this year. The YWCA’s goal is $95,000.
The men of KTSM will put on the iconic red high heels to help raise money and awareness. If you’d like to join us, and participate in the event, click here.
