Participants run in stilettos to help fight breast cancer

Runners will be putting their best foot forward as they participate in a 100 yard dash wearing stilettos to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, reports The Portland Press Herald.

The first annual Stiletto Challenge is putting a unique spin on the traditional walks and runs that raise money for breast cancer charities.

Runners must wear stilettos, which can be any color or style, but should be at least two inches high. It looks like most participants are even giving some of their heels a trial run.

"I'll do a few loops around the block to test them out," participant Keri Guay told the news source.

The race is open to both women and men, but organizer Scott Manthorne has yet to see any guys step forward and accept the challenge.

"I haven't had any men who are proud enough or strong enough to pull it off," he told the news provider.

The money raised will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation has been raising money for breast cancer research since 1982. Since then, the charity has donated more than $1.5 billion dollars towards cancer research.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19790971-ADNFCR
