This quintet of Queen Elizabeth II School students in Petrolia will shun socks and shoes on April 29 as they raise awareness about what impoverished people around the world who can't afford footwear endure. The Grade 8 students are holding a One Day Without Shoes event and will be walking barefoot along Petrolia sidewalks. They're hoping the awareness project spurs goodwill initiatives throughout Sarnia-Lambton. Pictured on April 21 are Mason Hyde, left, Jenna Bezanson, Noah Lefebvre, MacKenzie Limb, and Billy Bourne.
