No shoes, No socks,… True Service

Head Coach Ron Hunter, of Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, IuPuI(pronounced ewwey-pooey, seriously) will coach on Jan. 24th barefoot. That’s right No shoes, No Socks.
He is trying to raise awareness for Samaritan's Feet an organization, which brings shoes to people going barefoot around the world.
Samaritan's Feet was founded in 2004 by Emmanuel "Manny" Ohonme. Ohonme a native Nigerian who was inspired when at age nine he received his first pair of shoes from a stranger.
Hunter will also take the next step. In July he will head to Africa with the 40,000 shoes he is trying to collect. He will be sacrificing a prime portion of the recruiting season. I mean the real sacrifice is that it’s Africa IN JULY.
