Congratulations to our 4th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes winners, Hank Crippen and James Lowe!

James Lowe walked away with two awards, the "Top Fundraiser" and "Fastest Feet". James won the final heat in our footrace and also raised the most money. Go James!

Thank you to everyone involved in making our 4th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes happen! We couldn't have done it without you.

A special thank you to the brave men who put themselves in someone else's shoes, stepping up to raise money for the Crisis Center of Comal County and New Braunfels Angels.


KGNB/KNBT’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: Men raising money and racing against one another in a way they never expected!

In 2020, on heels of a year that pushed all of us to change in many ways, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes was met with exuberant applause from this community!


That first year and every year since, a dedicated group of guys put themselves in someone else’s shoes, stepping up to raise money for charities that are critical in our community. Walk a Mile contestants commit to walk, trot and tip toe in high heels in public. They’re good sports! They do the heavy lifting ahead of time, each raising money for our beneficiaries while also saving their own feet a bit. The more money they raise, the better their starting line advantage when it’s time to race. They’re motivated!

The Crisis Center of Comal County was founded in 1986 as the Comal County Women’s Center.
