The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event in Old Town on Saturday, April 5, during which men donned heels for a mile-long march through Eureka to raise awareness about violence against women, left Humboldt with more than just blisters. According to Ruthanne DeMirjyn, the fiscal coordinator for the North Coast Rape Crisis Center,  the event has raked in $2,600 so far, with more funds still trickling in. If you missed the big day, you can still make a contribution. And you can still see District Attorney Paul Gallegos in a pair of chunky open-toe platforms right here. Now you're all caught up.
