Students Step Up

The YWCA Central Massachusetts would like to thank Clark University students for stepping up!

On Thursday, February 11, 2010, students at Clark raised over $400 for the YWCA’s domestic violence programs through a late-night Stair-A-Thon. Participants donate $10 to run/walk up campus stairwells from 11:00 p.m. – midnight and compete to break the record of the number of trips made up and down in one hour. This year’s record breaker was Jospeh Kennelly with 55 trips up and down!

The Stair-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser sponsored by Clark University’s Making A Difference Scholars and the Comunity Engagement & Volunteering Center. Proceeds go to the YWCA to support its violence prevention programs for women and children.
