More than 50 teams, representing 700 walkers, participated in Kingsborough Community College (KCC) 2nd annual walkathon on November 9. The highly anticipated walkathon raised more than $30,000 for student scholarships, more than a 30% increase over last’s year’s walkathon.
“I thank all of you who walked, worked, bought and ate to make this accomplishment a reality,” said Kingsborough President Regina Peruggi. “Congratulations to all of you who turned out for our brisk jaunt around the campus. Not only did the turn-out show our great KCC spirit, but some of the team costumes displayed great creativity.”
The economic downturn of the last two years has impacted KCC and its students significantly. A record number of students are enrolled and many are experiencing increasing pressures on their limited financial resources coupled with a dimished ability to find jobs while attending school. While the college financial aid office works with every student to identify appropriate federal and state financial aid, many students still have remaining unmet financial needs.
