LIVE! with Regis and Kelly

On today's "LIVE! with Regis and Kelly," 26-year-old Ida Bernstein of Cockeysville, MD ran away with the win during LIVE's 2010 High Heel-a-thon in Central Park. The Maryland grad student finished the 150-yard sprint in a remarkable 19.12 seconds, setting a new course record and winning the grand prize of an All-New 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, plus a special surprise $10,000 check.

Rebecca Sorenson of Ft. Collins, Colorado, walked away with $5,000 as the 2nd place finisher, and 3rd place runner Anna Carr of Destin, FL was awarded $2,500. In the men's race, 2008 High Heel-a-thon winner Shane Neil of Brooklyn, NY returned and successfully defended his title, winning $1,000 in prize money. In addition, this year's High Heel-a-thon was powered by Zappos.com, and the online fashion retailer teamed up with "Project Runway's" Tim Gunn (roving correspondent for the event) to present the "Best Dressed" award. Cat Berkowitz of Waxhaw, NC, was rewarded for her stylish ensemble with a snazzy trophy and a $1,000 Zappos.com gift certificate. And in keeping with the overall footwear theme, all finishers were able to take home a pair of Seychelles shoes from the Zappos.com booth.

Other notable participants were LIVE's own Kelly Ripa, who finished with a time of 29.77 seconds, wearing a pair of 3-inch LaDuca heels; Broadway, film and TV star Kristin Chenoweth, completing the course in 48.77 seconds; and "90210" beauty AnnaLynne McCord, with a time of 36.92 seconds.

Even those who didn't place in the competition could feel great about participating, as proceeds from the 2010 High Heel-a-thon benefited the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of The Heart Truth® campaign for women's heart health education and research. At the end of the event, Philbin and Ripa presented the organization with a check for $63,000.
