YWCA breaks "Walk a Mile" record



This year's YWCA Rock County "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" will be marching into the record books. YWCA Director of Development Jeff Bealles never imagined a few guys wearing high heals would become such a big fundraiser when it began seven years ago. This year's event, to support YWCA domestic violence programs, attracted a record number of participants and donations. Close to 200 joined in the one-mile walk and almost $80,000 were raised. Bealles attributes much of the success to the participants. He's also planning an 8th annual event for next year.
