Men in heels returning to Campbelltown CBD for a good cause

It's that time of year again - the folks from Harcourts Campbelltown are getting ready to hit the streets in heels.

The high-heeled hijinks are held each year to raise money and awareness for the domestic violence crisis in Australia.

Last year locals raised more than $18,000 for White Ribbon Australia and Harcourts staff want to see a similar number in 2019.

"We are proud to again be supporters of Walk a Mile in Their Shoes and to host the local event," Harcourts owner Garth Makowski said.

"Domestic violence is such an important and complicated issue, that affects so many women and also their children.

"It is important to remind victims they are not alone, and as men, take a stand and show other men that this behaviour is not acceptable.

"This is what Walk a Mile is all about."

Previous events have taken off from Mawson Park, but since Harcourts' office moved to Broughton Street this year, the starting point has also shifted up the road.

All Harcourts staff - men and women - have been encouraged to don their heels and take part in the Walk a Mile campaign for a good cause.

Community members are also welcome to join for a $25 donation.

Harcourts offices across Australia hope to raise a total of $100,000. In 2018, the Campbelltown participants were the biggest donors.

"The money donated is channelled by White Ribbon to school educational programs, with an early intervention approach," Mr Makowski said.

"It fwe can get to the kids early enough, we can educate them on the right behaviour to ensure our young men grow up respectful of women and break the domestic abuse cycle.

"It's not okay, nor is it acceptable, that men physically or mentally abuse their wives and/or partners."

Walk a Mile will be held on Friday, August 30 at noon, from Broughton Street to Koshigaya Park.

Donations stood at $6700 on Monday.
