Five-kilometer walkathon that raised $22,000 for Montclair High School’s homeless students.

MONTCLAIR - Hundreds of Montclair High School students participated Monday in a five-kilometer walkathon that raised $22,000 for the school's homeless students.

About 900 walkers at event, called Miles for Montclair, seemed to stretch more than a half-mile along city streets. It was the highest turnout yet for the event, now it its fourth year, said event coordinator Amahl Thomas, a history and ethnic studies teacher.

"All in all, we're very pleased," Thomas said. "Again, the economy is not great. We're not in a wealthy neighborhood. These are students just giving what they can, so it was a great effort."

Ingrid Galvan, a 16-year-old junior from Pomona, said the event is for a good cause.

"I think it's a good one because they're helping kids who need food and clothes, and this helps them feel better about themselves," Ingrid said.

In three prior events, students raised $67,000 for homeless students by soliciting donations from friends and family members.

The organization gives homeless students vouchers for food, clothing and hotel rooms.

In December, the organization helped purchase new mattresses for family who lost their possessions in a fire.
