IUPUI’s Ron Hunter to go barefoot for good cause
Hunter wants to collect 40,000 pairs of shoes, the number in honor of the 40th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr., to bring to Africa to give to people who are not fortunate enough to have shoes. And for one game he will coach without shoes on himself.
Working with an organization called Samaritan’s Feet, Hunter, who is in his 14th season with the Jaguars, wants to raise awareness of the people around the world without shoes.
“There should be no one in this world walking around barefoot,” Hunter said. “I just can’t even imagine that. I can’t imagine my children doing it.”
