FLEMINGTON, N.J., April 21, 2014 – Are you man enough to compete? During the second annual "Men in Heels" relay, teams comprised of men age 18 and older will strap on assorted styles of women's shoes to raise funds for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. This year's event takes place on Saturday, May 17 at 10 a.m., rain or shine, in the parking lot of Gallo Rosso Bar & Restaurant, located in The Shoppes at Flemington in Flemington, N.J.
This fun and engaging community event was created to address serious issues in a lighthearted way, while bringing men into the movement to end violence against women and girls. All proceeds raised will benefit SAFE in Hunterdon, a nonprofit organization that delivers support services to local families who have experienced violence in their lives. The Men in Heels relay is free of charge to spectators.
Members of the all-male teams will complete a short course of approximately 100 yards while wearing high-heeled shoes. Participants are encouraged to bring their own "sensible" heels, between 2- and 3-inches high. Safety and good sportsmanship will be emphasized in this friendly competition. Trophies will be awarded to the top three relay teams, as well as in the categories of "Most Team Spirit," "Most Creative Outfits" and "Most Donations Raised."
