Henderson County Walks A Mile In Her Shoes
On Saturday, the men of Henderson County banded together to speak out against violence against women ... by walking a mile in a pair of high heels. Hey, it was for a good cause. This inaugural event required participants to walk four laps — about one mile — around the Henderson County Courthouse square (giving the folks attending the 82nd Athens Old Fiddlers Contest & Reunion something to talk about, for sure). The event was put on by the East Texas Crisis Center and sponsored by Crestway Park Dental; McDonald's; Crime Stoppers; East Texas Medical Center; Athens Thrift; Wood Forest Bank; Pit Stop Oil & Lube; Southside Feed and Supply; Athens Daily Review; KCKL; Ken's Pizza; Walmart; Henderson County Police Association; East Texas Screen Printing; Ship Shop; Groom & Sons; Subway; Power 99.3 FM; and the Mabank Monitor.
