Legacy March Breakfast

Legacy March Breakfast Graphic

The Legacy March was started ten years ago as a tribute to the spirit of Capt. Alden Partridge. Students trek 50 miles from Norwich, VT to Northfield, VT over the course of three days to raise money for the local nonprofit Vermont Veterans' Place; this organization provides transition support services to Vermont Veterans in need. Last year the marchers raised over $4,000 and their goal is to raise $6,000 this year. During their journey, students are provided with experiential education.

Since the march began, the NU Club of the Upper Valley has been feeding, supporting, and cheering on Norwich students as they begin their 50 mile trek back to campus. Come show your support! Join fellow alumni and friends to prepare a warm sendoff breakfast, courtesy of the NU Club of the Upper Valley, for the more than 50 students participating in this year's march. Show your maroon and gold pride to these young men and women! Various volunteer shifts are available.
