On October 15th, the third Steps to Make a Difference Walk took place. The beneficiaries for the event were N.E.W. Community Clinic, ALS Therapy Development Foundation, Baird Creek Preservation Foundation, Bay Area Humane Society, New Community Shelter and the Lakeland Chapter of the American Red Cross. Students in the Public and Nonprofit Management class organized the event and raised $12,000 to support these organizations. Something unique to this walk was that walkers were asked to bring school supplies that students in a UWGB service learning course would take to Costa Rica for needy children.
