Norwich University students will conduct a three-day, 50-mile march through the state beginning Thursday, Oct. 13 to raise money for The Veterans’ Place in Northfield and The Dodge House, a shelter for women veterans located in Rutland.

This is the second annual Legacy March fundraiser.

Participants will march 50 miles starting from the university’s original site at the village green in Norwich, Vt., arriving at the Northfield campus for the football game on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 1 p.m. against Gallaudet.

Marchers will receive educational instruction pertaining to history and geology along the way in the spirit of educational marches led by Norwich’s founder, Capt. Alden Partridge.

Anyone interested in donating to this fundraiser, please send a check made out to “Norwich University” to the Center for Civic Engagement and Campus Climate at 158 Harmon Dr. Northfield, Vt. 05663. Donations will be split evenly between the two veterans’ organizations.
