Brave men, sign up for Walk A Mile in Her Shoes in Biloxi

Wanted: Brave men who will walk a mile in high heels.

For the fifth year, the Gulf Coast Women's Center for Nonviolence will hold its Walk A Mile in Her Shoes, which is a worldwide event that raises awareness and encourages everyone to stand up against violence against women.

Participants should check in at 8 a.m. Friday at the Biloxi Lighthouse Pier, and the walk will begin at 9 a.m.

Some shoes will be available, but participants are encouraged to bring their own, for best fit.

Men, women and children are invited to walk or watch, with or without high heels. Participation is free.

Individuals or teams can register at gcwcfn.org/wam2016.
