About Our Event

About Our Cause

On November 19 & 20, WRSI – The River’s Monte Belmonte will be leading his annual march against hunger through the Pioneer Valley, during his Monte’s March event. For those two-days, Monte, Congressman Jim McGovern, and a number of their supporters, will push a shopping cart 43- miles from Springfield to Greenfield to raise awareness and funds for food insecurity in our region. Supporters are encouraged to donate money to benefit The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.  Last year, the event raised more than $258,000.

You can march with Monte and Congressman McGovern by raising money for the event as an individual or as part of a team:

Individuals:

  • A suggested fundraising minimum of $1,000 of more is encouraged to join Monte for either Monday or Tuesday of the walk (or a smaller portion).
  • Marchers must be 18+ or accompanied by an adult.
  • All Marchers are responsible for arranging their own transportation and pick-ups.

Create a Team:

  • A suggested fundraising minimum of $1,000 or more per team is encouraged to join Monte for either Monday or Tuesday of the walk (or a smaller portion). Teams are defined as two or more people fundraising together.
  • Teams are asked to please choose no more than one person to walk at a time. As Monte's March continues to grow, so does the number of people walking. These measures are to help ensure the safety of everyone involved.
  • Marchers must be 18+ or accompanied by an adult.
  • All Marchers are responsible for arranging their own transportation and pick-ups.

Can't march? Become a virtual marcher and raise funds online to support the march! There is no suggested fundraising minimum to be a virtual marcher.
