Athletic Platform

 

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.

This movement has been vital to our ability to collect shoes and raise funds for mobilization and operation. The passionate volunteers who make these events happen have been responsible for soliciting millions of pairs of shoes and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
