NAPLES, Fla. -- Ladies and gentleman were strutting their stuff in stilettos Sunday, all for a good cause.
The goal of the Stiletto Sprint and Strut at the Mercato was to "heel" breast cancer, one step at a time. 

The event benefits Susan G. Komen of Southwest Florida. Hundreds showed up to Sunday's ‘race’ and ran in heels to show their support. 

The event was on hiatus for a while, but came back this year by popular demand.  "We decided to bring it back because a lot of people were asking about it, because it's kind of like a party and a fun thing to raise money.  So it's sort of a party with a purpose,” says Georgia Hitzke.
