For the fourth year in a row, Madeira students, faculty, and staff participated in the STOP Hungers Games. The games are a fundraising event – an apocalyptic version of tag – between “zombies and humans” to benefit STOP Hunger Now.
STOP Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling a commitment to end hunger for more than 15 years. A $5 donation was all students and adults needed to participate; every $5 entry buys 20 meals.
Five original zombies start the spread of the zombie plague, and it gradually worked its way through the human population until only one human was left. Humans were identified by a white headband and zombies with a red. Competition was fierce this year; alliances were built, previous winners were targeted and bragging rights were at stake! After all was said and done, students, faculty and staff raised enough money to provide 2,600 meals to those in need.
The victors of this year’s games were:
Last standing Human (1st place): Sophie Luraschi
2nd Place Human: Alex Raposo
Zombie who tagged the most people: Ms. Candia
