Shoeless Pro Beach Spiker Supporting Shoe-Oriented Charity

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A professional beach volleyball player is putting his best foot forward to help a childrens charity.

Eric Fonoimoana is helping to strike up interest in something called the “BIG STEPS Shoe Disk,” a small medallion designed to be worn on the shoe as a reminder of each step taken towards a cure for the disease.

The charity disc benefits the Children’s Cancer Fund and while Fonoimoana is down with the cause, he’s not sure how he’s supposed to sport the disks playing beach volleyball, a sport that doesn’t require shoes.

Still, the gold medalist spiker figures he’ll just have to wear it ``in spirit'' – maybe at the gym, or tied to my flip-flops at the beach.”

Fonoimoana says an ankle bracelet is a possibility, but that could also be a safety issue.

He admits, “It could be a problem if it flies off my leg as I jump out of the sand.”
