Aidan Ross, and a host of other men, had plenty of practice walking in heels on Saturday as they took part in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes march.

The event is an international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence in an effort to educate their communities and raise money for chronically underfunded rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence prevention and recovery services.

Ross said he has been walking in the event since seventh grade and thinks it's a good event for a good cause.

"It goes to a good cause," he said, "and it's fun to watch people who you would never think would walk in high heels, walk in high heels."

Ross said he is definitely feeling the pain in his heels, but that it's worth it, and he encourages other men to get involved.
