Wednesday’s editorial encourages support for CASA’s upcoming high-heeled fundraiser:
Walk A Mile in Her Shoes has been a successful fundraiser for Citizens Against Spouse Abuse, and the nonprofit is expanding the number of walkers to 24 for the third annual charity walk May 12 at Market Common on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base.
JoAnne Patterson, executive director of CASA, says she is “still looking for a half-dozen walkers” – men who are willing to walk a mile wearing high heels. Now’s the time to sign up so the walkers have some time to learn how to walk in heels and, more importantly, to line up $1,000. That’s the main reason for the advance registration, although a little practice in the heels probably is not a bad idea. The charity walk raised $14,000 the first year with 17 participants and last year netted $11,000. Patterson is hoping to increase the amount with more walkers and each raising $1,000 from supporters.
