One of the most entertaining evenings you can spend in Cayman is at Camana Bay for the A Walk in Her Shoes annual event. Why?
Because a group of men usually very comfortable in their brogues or sneakers, elevate themselves with women’s heels and, for a great cause, attempt to maneuver their way down the street.
This year, it will be held on March 8 at 5:30 p.m. along Market Street in Camana Bay. Gentlemen, get ready to mince.
This fundraiser for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre hit the ground running, so to speak, in its first year, with crowds gathering to watch the spectacle. Now, it is a firm favorite of the public, particularly when participants go that extra mile (guffaw) to really dress the part.
It is not unheard of to see accountants, bartenders, hotel managers and personal trainers tripping the light fantastic in pretty pumps, flowery dresses, fetching scarves, colorful hats and even a feather boa or two. Have beard, will travel.
Participants can register online as individuals or a team for $25 per person and then get friends and family to sponsor them in their quest. They must walk a minimum of one lap and a maximum of five.
One way to reduce the number of laps they have to negotiate is to raise more money. For every $150-mark they hit, they can cut down their laps by one. So, for example, if someone raises $450, they only have to walk two laps.
The hope is to exceed the goal of $55,000 this year and you can help. Sign up to walk, or sponsor a participant and, definitely, do not miss the spectacle. It is well worth the money.
