MLK Challenge 2015

On Monday January 18th, 2016 Appalachian State University & ACT will celebrate the 17th anniversary of the MLK Challenge! Last year, 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 to make it a day on rather than a day off. Additionally, $1,000.00 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.

 

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
