Last Saturday morning, 2,000 members of the Corps stepped off for the 46th annual March to the Brazos. Each year, the Corps of Cadets conducts the March to the Brazos to raise money for designated non-profit organizations. On Saturday, the Corps of Cadets marched the 18-mile round trip in support of 4 local non-profit organizations: Scotty’s House, the Brazos Valley Food Bank, Twin City Mission and Habitat for Humanity.
While cadets marched to raise awareness for these 4 non-profits on Saturday, they spent the last school year volunteering with and assisting these non-profits. From organizing collection drives for canned food and clothing, to raising awareness on the impacts of child abuse, our cadets have provided hands on support.
This year, the Corps of Cadets raised a grand total of $33,572.68 that will be distributed amongst the four non-profits. The Corps’ top fundraising outfit, Company E-1, raised over $5,000 for Habitat for Humanity.
Though this year’s fundraising efforts have come to a close, the Corps of Cadets continues to encourage those that are interested in donating to learn more about these non-profits at https://corps.tamu.edu/mttb/.
