Every August, students walk from Lewiston, Maine to Saint Anselm College to raise funds for nine charities in Maine and New Hampshire. 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."

To make a donation to Road For Hope, send a check to the Office of Campus Ministry made out to "Saint Anselm College" with "Road For Hope" in the memo. Or use the website link below to make an online donation
