The Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls will host the third annual Samaritan’s Feet Barefoot Classic event on Saturday to help raise awareness for the Samaritan’s Feet organization.

During the event, coaches will have the option to go barefoot if they choose.

Since its inception in 2003, Samaritan’s Feet has reached people in need in “more than 90 countries and 350 U.S. cities.”

This year, the Barefoot Classic boys basketball event consists of eight games, and includes fourteen teams from South Dakota (Class AA, A, and B).

It will also have representation from Minneapolis North in Minnesota and Sioux City North in Iowa as well.
