Men to don high-heeled shoes to draw attention to sexual violence


Dean Shuck usually wears a size 10-E shoe. The extra width gives the Kandiyohi County commissioner and farmer from rural Sunburg a little more comfort. But on Saturday, Shuck will squeeze his dogs into a pair of high-heeled women's shoes and attempt to walk a mile. For his efforts, Shuck -- and the other men who'll be hobbling around the track at Willmar Junior High -- will earn pledge money for Shelter House and increase public awareness of sexual violence.
