A "lapathon" took place at Alameda High School's Thompson Field to raise money for the Action Against Hunger organization Jan. 24.
The AHS leadership class organized the event.
Some 60 to 70 participants turned out to raise awareness about growing starvation in the world among the poorest of countries.
Action Against Hunger has 6,000 field workers around the world working to end hunger.
With the combined efforts of different organizations among five countries, Action Against Hunger benefits 5 million people across the globe.
The AHS students hoped to raise a minimum of $1,000. The leadership class of Alameda High wanted to remind Alamedans that anyone could take part in the process to help make the world a better place.
