Barefoot?  In December?  In South Dakota. Who on earth would do that and why on earth would they do that might be the second question.  Here's a tip of the hat to the students and faculty at Sioux Falls Christian.  Check out the news release they sent out today:

During the girls and boys Varsity games, the coaches, cheerleaders, pep band & drum line members are all going barefoot to help raise awareness for those with bare feet. Sioux Falls Christian is partnering with Samaritan’s Feet, a non-profit ministry based out of Charlotte, NC, to raise funds that will allow SFC to distribute new shoes to children on the Lake Andes Indian Reservation this coming summer. The Sioux Falls Christian vs. Southwest Christian matchup is the first of 65 high school games in South Dakota which will feature coaches going without shoes. Samaritan’s Feet wristbands will be sold for $10 throughout the night. Each wristband that is sold will provide one pair of shoes for a child on the Lake Andes Indian Reservation. Students from SFC’s Leadership Class will be selling wristbands and collecting donations at the Samaritan’s Feet booth at the ticket table and at the concession stand. All proceeds will go towards the Shoes of Hope Shoe Distribution this coming summer. Please help us reach our goal of raising $4,000 for our upcoming Shoes of Hope Shoe Distribution on the Lake Andes Reservation. For more information about this project, please visit or to give online and learn more about SFC’s involvement in the ministry please visit the mission link on SFC’s website

If you have a student at Sioux Falls Christian you already know about this important project that will be going on. If you don't have a student who attends SFC now you know what they're talking about if they ask you to take part, in taking off shoes.  For a great cause.
