About Our Cause

On November 22nd & 23rd, 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 two days, Monte, Congressman Jim McGovern, and 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. Our target this year is $500,000 and with your help, we know we can surpass this goal! 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) but we want EVERYONE to march - no matter how much is raised. It's that important.
  • 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) but we want EVERYONE to march - no matter how much is raised. It's that important.
    Teams are defined as two or more people fundraising together.
  • 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 or create a mini-march in your neighborhood or at your school! There is no suggested fundraising minimum to be a virtual marcher but we know you'll do great!
