MLK Challenge 2014

On Monday January 20th, 2014 Appalachian State University & ACT celebrated the 15th anniversary of the MLK Challenge, the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, and most importantly the beautiful life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through a day of service called The MLK Challenge. Thousands of dollars were raised for local nonprofits, almost 300 pounds of food was collected for a pantry, and the lives of several local families were made a bit brighter.

Thank you to the dedicated 245 students, staff, and faculty volunteers who made it a day on and brought hope and inspiration to our community!

Participants met at Legends at 8am, were divided into service teams, and were randomly assigned a “challenge” to be completed by the day's end. It was an incredible day powered by imaginative and motivated people.

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
