Good Counsel Lacrosse Teams Make Shoes for Sole Hope

Shoes

 

Recently, the Good Counsel Boys and Girls Lacrosse teams have worked together to benefit Sole Hope, a non-profit that helps get shoes on the feet of Ugandans in need. Local CBS affiliate station WUSA 9 stopped by to see the Falcons in action and put together this piece about their efforts.

 

From the article by Diane Roberts:

 

"You know we're kind of privileged here and we always have a nice fresh pair of shoes and it’s something they've never really seen," said Jack Sebeck, a senior Midfielder for the boys’ lacrosse team.

 

'They' are young people in Uganda who suffer from a devastating foot disease. The problem can be prevented by simply wearing shoes, which many don't own and can't afford.

 

Enter the Falcons lacrosse teams. 

 

The girls had the idea for a simple service project and invited the boys along for the fun.

 

"It makes such an impact for these kids and everybody has a pair of jeans...everybody has a pair of jeans they're not wearing that can go towards something greater," said Katie Martin, a Senior on defense. 

 

The something greater is the Sole Hope project. The project facilitates turning old jeans into brand new shoes.
