CONWAY — “Here we are at our 2nd annual Monte’s March,” said Grammar School Principal Kristen Gordon, before entering the gymnasium where about 150 excited students sat cross legged on the floor, holding signs and preparing to march around the building.
They were inspired by 93.9 “The River” radio personality Christopher “Monte” Belmonte’s annual 43-mile hunger walk benefiting the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Belmonte left from Springfield Monday and completed his trek Tuesday evening at Magpie Woodfired Pizzeria in Greenfield.
“Conway Grammar School had a goal to raise $1,000 dollars. Do you think we reached that goal?” asked 5th grade teacher Maggie West. The students shouted a resounding “yes.”
