"Walk a Mile" marches forward with recruitment



A YWCA Rock County event marches on with plans to raise money. Men in Rock Count are lining up to "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" for the fundraising event a week from this Friday, but co-chair Steve Vicenzi would like to see more. Vicenzi says he's sharing the message with anyone that'll listen. Some like the idea and want to help, others aren't so keen about wearing women's shoes. In either case, Vicenzi wants people to understand the toll domestic violence takes on women and children. For this dedicated business owner, the benefits of the event outweigh any embarrassment. Organizers are about 75% of the way to their goal of signing up 150 men to "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes." The event raised around $70 thousand last year.
