AUSTIN -- Dozens of women -- and men -- strapped ont heir stilettos for the fifth annual Stiletto Stampede at The Triangle on Saturday.

Participants ran or walked 100 yards in their decorated high heel shoes.

Money raised for the event will go towards the new breast care center at Seton Medical Center.

The event's founder, Michelle Patterson, said she wanted to come up with a creative way to educate young adults, so she combined her two loves: running and shoes.

"As a woman, I feel like you walk, you know, 10 hours a day in your heels," Patterson said. "Running 100 yards is super easy, especially compared to having breast cancer."

There was also a dog competition and a stroller strut.
