Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- NDSU's men basketball coach is going barefoot to raise money for children around the world who don't have shoes.
Coach Saul Phillips will take the court during Sunday's rivalry game against UND, without shoes.
His efforts aim to raise money for Barefoot for Bare Feet, a movement providing shoes for millions of children worldwide who have to go without them each day.
Saul is asking fans to not only come out, but also donate. Even ten dollars is enough to buy one pair.
Saul says, "if you look at just the numbers and the number of children around the world, in particular children around the world without shoes, it prevents them from going to school, diseases. It's heartbreaking and it's devastating, and we don't see that here."
Donations will be accepted at the game beginning 4PM Sunday at the Fargodome, or people can donate via text or online.
