LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- In support of women dealing with the threat of sexual violence, a group of men at Utah State University walked a mile in their shoes. Literally.

More than 130 men marched -- or sashayed -- through campus in high heels Wednesday, waving signs with statistics about sexual violence. The group of mostly USU students was raising money and awareness to battle the problem.

The event was sponsored by the school's Sexual Assault and Anti-Violence Information Office.

One man has gone beyond the call and offered to continue wearing heels one day for every $20 he raises. So far, he's collected $360.

But Doug Hills says the offer is only good through May 1, because he doesn't want to spend all summer in heels.
