In order to ensure that as many students as possible could be reached by the message, she enlisted the help of staff and faculty who stepped up to the challenge of racing in heels.
And while Tuesday’s event delivered a relevant and serious message, many smiles were had as students watched their favorite teachers and campus staff encounter the struggles of being a woman.
Not only were they required to run in stiletto heels, but the men were forced to carry a purse, tote a pretend baby, all the while talking on a cellphone, to encompass the multitasking abilities of a mother.
Some accomplished the feat better than others, but Adams said she couldn’t have been happier with the dedication of each participant in Tuesday’s race.
“Our staff play a huge role in encouraging students to get involved,” Adams said. “It shows our students that our staff cares about it and that it means a whole lot to everyone.”
