Jan. 16, 2023 — A prime example of service

Today, about a thousand families in Columbus, Ohio are being given new pairs of shoes thanks to a partnership between Samaritan’s Feet and Ohio State University senior Emma Goldean.

Goldean was the first female student-athlete to work with Samaritan’s Feet through a name-likeness-image agreement.

Given the fact that many NLI agreements have been used to build up small fortunes to benefit the athlete, this charity work that Goldean has been doing is remarkable. Giving back to underserved communities, such as people in poor areas of the rust belt, is something that is exceedingly rare for athletic teams except in rare instances of disaster.

The goal, according to one report, is to give away as many as 25,000 pairs of shoes, If you would like more information on this effort, feel free to click here.
