A coach who went barefoot during a game to raise awareness for needy children in Africa generated donations of more than 100,000 pairs of shoes for charity.
IUPUI coach Ron Hunter exceeded his goal of collecting 40,000 pairs in honor of the 40th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He coached Thursday night's game against Oakland University without shoes, and some in attendance also went barefoot.
Nearly $20,000 and 110,000 pairs of shoes were donated to the Charlotte, N.C., charitable organization called Samaritan's Feet.
The coach appeared on several ESPN shows on Thursday, and secured donations of thousands of shoes from Converse, Wal-Mart, Nine West and the Department of Homeland Security.
