No doubt there are many men and women soaking their feet tonight after being heroes in heels.
The fourth annual event raises money to ensure women in need have access to mammograms at Florida Hospital. It started off as a way to get men involved in the fight against breast cancer and, this year, women walked too.
Nearly a dozen women have been diagnosed through the program. Ladies who otherwise would have let the disease go undetected because they didn't have insurance or the money to pay out of pocket.
"The economy, as we all know, people are losing their jobs, but the fact of the matter is early detection is key in beating breast cancer and surviving it and we don't want a single woman to go without their mammogram and this is our way to make sure that they have access to it," Florida Hospital Shelby Coriaty said.
Shelby knows the importance of getting checked; she herself was diagnosed 12 years ago at age 40. Two of her sisters are also battling the disease.
