UK Athletics partners with Samaritan’s Feet to give 10,000 pairs of shoes to Eastern Kentucky

Eastern Kentucky is still recovering after devastating floods hit the area just about a month ago. With families losing everything, the Commonwealth has come together to lend their hands to help the recovery efforts in the area.

Kentucky Athletics will do their part as well, as today they will deliver 10,000 pairs of shoes to help in the recovery efforts through a partnership with Samaritan’s Feet. Kentucky Wildcats basketball head coach John Calipari took to Twitter to share the exciting news on Monday night.

From John Calipari:  “The shoes will be distributed at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park from 10am-2pm ET and Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park from 12:30pm-4pm ET.  Our group will be at each location for the first hour that they are distributing shoes.  We are here for you, Kentucky!”

Alongside Calipari will be Blair Bergmann (STUNT team Head Coach), Golda Borst (Women’s Golf Head Coach), Brian Craig (Men’s Golf Head Coach), Carlos Drada (Women’s Tennis Head Coach), and Kyra Elzy (Women’s Basketball head Coach) will all travel to the area tomorrow to help distribute shoes at both locations.
