2017 Road For Hope Itinerary

For the 19th annual Road for Hope, August 19-26, 2017, 46 students will walk —rain or shine—from Lewiston, Maine to Saint Anselm College to raise funds for nine charities in Maine and N.H. It is a modern-day pilgrimage that, in the words of the mission statement, "seeks to provide funds for the needy, strengthen the bonds in our communities, and rekindle the belief that every footstep makes a difference."
