Ladies and Gents race in high heels to raise money for kid's camp

Posted: Updated:
On Friday, Apple Ridge Farm hosted the 3rd annual "Party on Franklin" event. Ladies and gentlemen took part in a high heel race and other activities to help raise money for charity. Apple Ridge Farm is a non-profit group that host summer camps for kids.

"The kids get to do nature walks, water activities. We teach them to swim and play tennis and we form them into well rounded children" said Janice Dunleavy Development Director for Apple Ridge Farm. "We also teach them about self esteem and character building."

The money from the day's event goes toward Apple Ridge Farm camps. Dunleavy said it cost close to $550 per child which is paid for through donations.

High heel racers said, when it comes to running in heels, gender doesn't matter because it is all about the technique.

"You don't run in the shoes, you do a tip toe, a fast tip toe" said Sgt. Darrick Jones, Roanoke City Sheriff's Department.
