First ever Komen high heel dash this weekend

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - How much would you pay to see your man run 50 yards in two-inch high heels?

The first ever Susan G. Komen high heel dash happens this weekend.

Men and women ages 18 and older will run 50 yards as fast — and carefully — as they can, showing their support for Susan G. Komen central Virginia.

"Last year, they gave $500,000 in grant money to multiple non profit organizations, so it all centers around breast cancer research and breast cancer awareness,"said race director Jessica Corbett.

The Saxon Shoe High Heel Dash is happening this Saturday at The Shops at Innsbrook at 3 p.m.

There will be prizes for the dash winner and best dressed.

Registration for participants is $10.

Call 345-1212 and see if you've got what it takes to become the first ever high heel dash champion.
