On Saturday, January 20th, 2018 Appalachian State University & ACT celebrated the 19th anniversary of the MLK Challenge. Over 250 participants joined us to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King through a day of service, reflection, and education. This day challenged our participants intellectually, socially, and physically. We divided into teams to accomplish challenging projects alongside 20+ community partners. Through rain, snow, or shine, it's all part of the challenge.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
