Barefoot Quest

Last year, when basket ball coach Ron Hunter (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) went barefoot on the sideline to help collect shoes for needy children around the world, little did he know hundreds of foot soldiers would join him in his quest. According to Samaritan's Feet, a non-profit organization that distributes the shoes more than 300 youth, high school and college coaches have pledged to coach one game barefoot and collect shoes around the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Samaritan's Feet hope to collect 1 million pairs in 2009.
