|49ers Participate in Shoe of Hope Event|
Track and Field all-America Darius Law, President of the 49ers Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), and Charlotte 49ers head men's basketball coach Alan Major took members of the 49ers men's and women's basketball teams to Samaritan's Feet's Shoe of Hope event, April 29. The student-athletes distributed shoes and washed the feet of the recipients.
In January, Law had spearheaded efforts to raise funds and collect shoes for Samaritan's Feet, a Charlotte-based organization that provides shoes to those in need both locally and around the world.
Law, a senior, plans to join Samaritan's Feet on a trip to South Africa this summer.
Each of the 49ers athletic teams participated in the effort to raise funds and collect shoes during the SAAC's Samaritan's Feet campaign, which culminated with collections at a men's and women's basketball game in January.
This week, Law and his fellow 49ers, took another step with Samaritan's Feet, by taking time to wash the feet of recipients and distributing shoes.
