— A cou­ple steps put in lo­cally will have a global im­pact.

On Thurs­day, Mount Aviat Academy hosted a stu­dent Walk2Re­build walk-athon for Ecuador. To date, Mount Aviat has raised $11,000, ac­cord­ing to the school of­fi­cials. All money raised will go to­ward re­build­ing sev­eral schools that were de­stroyed in earth­quakes in April.

The Oblate Sis­ters chal­lenged the stu­dents to bring in their spon­sor­ship forms, agree­ing to wear col­or­ful sneak­ers for the walk if they did. Some sis­ters had not worn other shoes in al­most 60 years.
