Kelly Ripa & Regis Philbin Sponsor a Fund-Raising High Heel-a-thon!! Race for the $$ in $tilettos!!

Not that I recommend running in stilettos or heels — unless you are in dire need– Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa of Live with Regis & Kelly in honor of the Olympics recently sponsored a fund-raiser in the form of a running contest for women in high heels! Yup!! You get to run in heels and the winner gets $25, 000 dollars!!! The charity is guaranteed at least $50,000 in donations– not bad for a quick jog around Central Park now is it?

This first ever event took place on July 9 (where was I? I hadn’t heard about this!!) and it was sponsored by Dr. Scholl’s and it benefited the March of Dimes

This is the Kelly Ripa video


From the New York Post’s video which gives you a bit of commentary from various sponsors and participants in the contest.

Just in case you weren’t sure about the fairness, there were qualifying rounds to make sure that everyone had a chance to win at this! If you want to participate next year, make sure you start practicing now!!
