From right, Marykelly Gooding, Lauren Julian, Chrissie Jones and other students of Saint Anselm College hold hands during a moment of prayer on Saturday morning, prior to starting on the Road for Hope Walk. The students, numbering around 40, started from the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Lewiston and will trek 130 miles to Manchester, N.H. The walk is a fundraiser to benefit Maine and New Hampshire charities, one of which is the Good Shepherd Food-Bank in Auburn. The trekkers plan to cover about 17 miles per day, spending the nights in church basements and parks.
