Walk a Mile in My Shoes event held to benefit local homeless

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 9, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Hundreds of valley residents experienced what it's like to be homeless on a hot summer day.

The third annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes event raises money for the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.

The mission provides 5,000 nights of shelter each month for the homeless in Las Vegas.

The walk is deliberately held in August, so everyone can experience how brutal the extreme heat is on our homeless community.
