Men’s Basketball in Costa Rica – Day 3 Photo Blog

The Georgia State men’s basketball team visited a school in Los Cuadros on Saturday morning to distribute shoes as a part of Samaritan’s Feet. The team traveled about 30 minutes from their hotel in San Jose for the distribution.

The Panthers will be back in action on Saturday night facing Puntarenas.

The Panthers visited a school in Los Cuadros on Saturday morning. The town is inhabited by many immigrants from San Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras looking for a better life in Costa Rica.

Rather that giving out shoes, the equivalent of Crocs were distributed as they will handle the Costa Rican weather much better for the children.

These shoes are much better in the warm and muggy Costa Rican climate as they are easy to wash and helps decrease foot disease.
