MLK Challenge 2015

On Monday January 19th, 2015 Appalachian State University & ACT celebrated the 16th anniversary of the MLK Challenge! Over 200 students, faculty, staff, and alumni honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King through a day-long service event that challenged participants intellectually, socially and physically.

Additionally, over $660.00 was raised as part of the Bonus Challenge. Each Challenge team was given the opportunity to fundraise for the Dr. Willie C. Fleming Endowed Scholarship once their site challenge was complete. Teams were able to conquer the Bonus Challenge through collecting donations from businesses as well as funds from generous citizens.
