High Heel Relay Supports Good Cause

Thanks to the blog reader who sent me this link today.  I thought I'd share it with everyone out there.

Some members of the Lincoln Stars volunteered their time yesterday to help raise money towards the Lincoln Junior League.  I'm going to post a video below from 10/11 News of highlights from the "High Heel Relay," held yesterday at Southpointe Pavilion.  Click here to view the article.  Text from the article is below:

Local runners wore some really uncomfortable shoes to make a difference Sunday.

The Lincoln Junior League held its inaugural High Heel Relay at Southpointe Pavilion this morning.

Fifteen teams of both men and women strapped on stilettos to raise money for a good cause.

The League donates money and time to local organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and Matt Talbot Kitchen.

Besides men's and women's heats, there was also a celebrity race.

Lincoln Stars hockey player Zach Aston-Reese won it in a pair of black strappy wedges, claiming the coveted green heel trophy.

At the :39 mark of the video, you can see Stars forward Dominik Shine sporting a very stylish pair of leopard print high heels.  And starting at the 1:08 mark of the video, you can see Stars forward Zach Aston-Reese winning the celebrity race in a pair of "black strappy wedges."  Who knew our favorite hockey players looked so good in high heels. :)  I found out later that Will Suter also participated in this event.

In all seriousness, this is a good glimpse at only one activity of many these players do throughout the season to give back to the local community.  Good on them.

Edit:  Here's another video from KLKN News.  More footage of Zach-Aston Reese winning his event, and holding his trophy!  Click the link below to watch the video.

I heard that ZAR has already talked to Corey about getting him a pair of high heel hockey skates for this season :)
