JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Guys of all ages lined up in their best high heels to race down Main Street for the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event.

Every participant had someone in mind they were walking for, mothers, sisters, and for a group of Jonesboro Public School students, they were excited to show up for their teacher, Mrs. Callahan.

“I’m very excited, extremely excited,” participant Thomas Stank said. “Like on a scale of one to ten, I’m at an eleven.”

Arkansas State University Chancellor Kelly Damphousse walked in his Red Wolves-decorated heels as well.

And Coach Blake Anderson led the way in the Bad Boy mower that will be raffled off.
