ATLANTA-Head men’s basketball coach Ron Hunter and his Panthers will host Georgia State’s second annual “Barefoot for Bare Feet Game” in support of Samaritan’s Feet on Wednesday, Jan. 16 as GSU hosts William and Mary at the Sports Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

Samaritan’s Feet is an organization that distributes shoes to impoverished children around the world. Coach Hunter has been involved with Samaritan’s Feet since 2008, coaching one game each season in his bare feet to raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause. Since 2008, he has helped the organization distribute shoes to two million children in need.

Coach Hunter’s involvement with Samaritan’s Feet goes much deeper than just raising funds. In 2011, shortly after he arrived at Georgia State, he traveled to Nigeria for shoe distribution and outreach. Then, in the summer of 2012, Coach Hunter and his entire team journeyed to South Africa for a similar mission, helping thousands of children and providing a life-changing learning experience for the Georgia State student-athletes.
