Students from Shelton helped raise awareness on poverty at an event at Eastern Connecticut State University: Dean Accomando, a sport and leisure management major; Aspasia Daniolos, a physical education major; Emily Komornik, a history major; Samantha Rossetti, a history and social science major. A donation was required to register for the 26.5 mile run around campus, with each lap consisting of 1.2 miles. Participants were encouraged to come and go as their schedule permitted.
