Fremont: Irvington High eyes global issue

"Irvington High School sophomores hope to raise up to $25,000 to combat global hunger with a charity race Saturday at Central Park in Fremont.

Administrators decided to maximize the school's service effort by pooling the entire sophomore class into a single project, instead of having students pick their own.

The result: A race run by Action Against Hunger, a global nonprofit that combats deadly malnutrition in more than 40 countries.
