Each Scholar donated $5 to participate in today’s walk.
The walk began in front of the Universal Audenried Charter High School, 33rd & Tasker Streets and headed to 32nd Street and traveled east on Dickinson Street to 20th Street & left on 20th Street to Wharton Street and traveled east on Wharton to Broad Street, then north on Broad Street to Catherine and left on Catherine at arrival in front of Universal Institute Charter School, 1415 Catherine Street.
Faatimah Gamble and Universal Audenried HRT Scholars ended the walk with a pep rally by Universal Institute Charter School Scholars and faculty who hosted a healthy catered lunch for their big Universal Brothers and Sisters.
