Like the old saying goes, “you can't understand a person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes.”

That's what dozens of guys were doing on Sunday at the downtown mall.

They were wearing pumps to protest against rape and sexual assault.

“These are good heartedly men that just want to find someway to support our work and can have fun at the same time,” said Walker Thornton, Executive Director, S.A.R.A.

The walk may have been difficult for most of the men, but they had fun.

“We decided to come out as a team to support this issue which is very important. We want to give back to the community because the community gives us a lot,” said Brand Oliver, Participant, Virginia Rugby Team.

Proceeds from the event will go to the teen prevention project which teaches them about sexual violence.
