Dozens of men in south-central Pennsylvania have teamed up for a good cause and put their best feet forward - in women's shoes.

Frank Baird is the founder of the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes march. He says it's an international men's movement that aims to stop violence against women.

About 40 men wore footwear including fluffy red marabou slippers with 2-inch heels for the Memorial Day march in Camp Hill, a town of about 8,000 residents just outside Harrisburg.

Monday's fundraiser generated about $5,000 for Rape Crisis of Cumberland County and Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry counties.
