Vienna Students Plan 50-Mile Walk to Baltimore for Fundraiser

Students from a high school in the Town of Vienna plan to walk 50 miles to Baltimore as part of a humanitarian fundraising effort.

Students from the James Madison High School will walk to help Team World Vision, a fundraising program for the humanitarian organization World Vision, provide clean water to communities in Africa.

The students and their supporters are set to start the trek tomorrow (Saturday) at 4 a.m. Google Maps estimates that the walk could take between 17-19 hours.

The group already hit its initial fundraising goal of $5,000 and now wants to see how much more money it can raise. Donations can be made to the team or to an individual.
