Samaritan’s Feet helps athletes, coaches, teams, and organizations looking to impact their community by offering a platform that brings all races together to reconcile and encourage communities across the globe.
Over the last 11 years, over 3,000 coaches representing high schools, city leagues, universities, and colleges have coached games, managed practices, and made public appearances in their bare feet, all in support of the mission of Samaritan’s Feet.
