Marcos Diaz started thinking of how he could make a difference in people’s lives the moment he was elected Student Senate president at Nashua Community College two years ago. “When I spoke to friends at other colleges and universities they would tell me about events on campus that were a big tradition,” he says. “I realized that we lacked a tradition, so I wanted to start one that included some form of giving back.”

And so began the Brave Walk/Run 5K that last April raised more than $4,000 to benefit the Nashua Mental Health Center. Although Diaz has graduated from NCC, he remains involved in the event as an AmeriCorps VISTA representative on campus. This year’s race, scheduled for April 25, will benefit Tails to Freedom, a charitable organization dedicated to raising awareness for the protection of animals and the environment.
