Monte's March 11
Monte's March 11: The Masked March


Monday & Tuesday, November 23 & 24, 2020 | Springfield to Greenfield, MA

2 Days. 3 Counties. 43 Miles. Fighting hunger, feeding hope.
Benefiting The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts

Each November, WRSI – The River’s Monte Belmonte leads Monte’s March, the largest anti-hunger event in western Mass. For those two days, Monte, Congressman Jim McGovern, and their supporters push a shopping cart 43 miles from Springfield to Greenfield to raise awareness about food insecurity in our region and funds to support our neighbors facing hunger. Monte broadcasts live, encouraging supporters to donate to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Last year, the event raised more than $369,000.

This year, our goal is to raise $365,000 to 4,000 meals per day for a whole year!

Fundraise to March with Monte

To ensure the safety of participants and our community, we are limiting the number of people who can March with Monte in 2020. Two members from the Top 5 fundraising teams will be invited to March, along with a small number of additional fundraisers chosen at random. Participants will be chosen based on fundraising totals on November 18th.
