Article:Group braves city barefoot to fight African plight

By | November 3, 2008

It’s going to take a couple bars of soap and some serious elbow grease but Allison Seidel is certain her feet will come clean.

“It’s going to take some scrubbing,” said Seidel, one of about a dozen who walked a mile barefoot around Calgary raising funds and awareness for the African AIDS epidemic yesterday. “We want to walk a mile in their shoes, well, in their lack of shoes because it’s such a huge problem.”

Seidel said she got the idea from the band Hanson, who is promoting bare-footed walks on their current tour and will donate $1 for every person that undertakes the cause.
