Valley City State University and Mayville State University basketball coaches will coach barefoot Wednesday night to raise awareness for Samaritan's Feet, a non-profit organization that donates shoes for people in need around the world.
The Viking basketball teams are teaming up with the VCSU Fellowship of Christian Athletes to help raise money and awareness Wednesday for Samaritan's Feet. Students from the FCA plan to sell Samaritan's Feet bracelets during the games at the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse in Valley City. Bracelets cost $10 and one bracelet pays for a pair of shoes to be distributed.
VCSU head coaches Jeff Kaminsky and Cathy Hanek, their staffs, and the Mayville State coaching staffs will all coach barefoot during the games, joining a long list of coaches from around the country who have teamed up with the Samaritan's Feet organization.
This is the first time the event has come to Valley City State. The VCSU FCA partnered with Samaritan's Feet and VCSU basketball to make the event happen.
