Hike up the Hill: Walkathon to benefit the College

By Philip Anselmo

Genesee Community College's Alumni and Friends will hold their annual Hike up the Hill event Saturday, September 13 to raise money for the college's scholarship fund. Everyone is invited to participate: service crews, churches, neighborhoods, workplaces, families or even groups of friends are encouraged to come by in costume, with themed props.

Pontillo's Pizzeria plans to have staff walking while twirling pizza dough above their heads and Genesee's nursing department will wheel a gurney along the walking route.

"We wanted this to be a fun event that includes all members of the community," said Patti Pacino, Alumni Coordinator. "By adding a unique and creative element to the walkathon we hope that more people will participate and that we raise more money than ever for scholarships this year."

The walkathon meets at the Batavia campus clock tower at 8:30am. ... Awards and special prizes will be presented during a picnic on the campus following the walk.
