The Minnesota Lynx are struggling so far this season, but today the team is making headlines for an off-the-court gesture.  

The reigning WNBA Champs visited an elementary school in Washington DC today to deliver new shoes and socks to the underprivileged kids there, partnering with a group called Samaritans Feet.  

Head coach Cheryl Reeve says it was a remarkable experience, with her players actually washing the kids' feet before putting new socks and shoes on them.


Past WNBA champions, including the Lynx three-times prior, have traditionally made visits to the White House to meet the president, but there was no invitation this year from President Trump.
