On Wednesday, November 5th the Marist community kicked-off its annual Walk Against Hunger at noon in the Champagnat Courtyard. Students were able to walk or run across campus out to Route 9, then returned back to campus to show hunger awareness and support, sporting multiple banners and posters for the cause.
Students were also able to donate money and boxes of food for hunger relief organizations. Just last year the Marist community raised over $4,000 and donated 63 boxes of food.
