Step Into Her Shoes

Come and support the women and men of Pacific University as they bring attention to societal pressures women face.

High heels, make-up, bras – are they really necessary?  The average woman spends approximately $15,000 on beauty products during her lifetime, and 4 in 5 women wear makeup. 1 in 10 women wear high heels at least 3 days a week and expose themselves to injured leg muscles, osteoarthritis of the knee, plantar fasciitis and low back pain. Over up to 90% of North American women wear uncomfortable push-up bras.  The question is, why?

60 men will run, jump, dance and strut in an entertaining obstacle course that puts men in women's shoes, literally, to bring attention to problems affecting us all.  Each team will compete for funds they will donate to a non-profit organization of their choice that deals with domestic abuse.

Following the obstacle course will be food, music, and tweets.  All invited.  Fun for a serious cause!
