Walk-a-thon starting point at Aberdeen

Walk-a-thon starting point at Aberdeen

The social responsibiltity team planned out a fundraising event in order to raise money for the Haiti Earthquake victims. Lots of volunteers came and our group raised a total of $200 or so dollars walking around Richmond asking for donations. This event was pretty successful and rewarding. People were very responsive and on the walk, we met with someone that was actually from Haiti. He told us that we were doing a great job and it encouraged us greatly. The walk was a total of 4hrs from 1-5pm. It was very tiring carrying signs around. Despite having only 3 or 4 meetings to plan this out it was successful. I fully appreciate how difficult events such as the 30 hour famine or walk-a-thons are carried out.

Below is the event page conveniently made on Facebook.
