WHAT IS IT?
CROP (Communities Reaching Out to People) Hunger Walks are conducted each year throughout the United States to raise money for reducing global hunger, disaster relief, and refugee assistance, mostly in the developing world. Last year $12 million dollars were raised through 1200 walks involving 116,000 people and 2000 communities. One slogan is “We walk because they walk” referring to the millions of people in the world who have to walk great distances everyday to get clean water and food. Up to 25% of funds raised can go to local food closets.
WHEN AND WHERE IS IT?
Saturday, April 9, 2016, 9:00 am – 1:00 p.m. Start at Santa Rita Park (children’s pavilion) and walk/run north on the River Trail. Three-mile (5k) walk/run will go to Schneider Park (at 9th Street bridge) and return. Six-mile walk/run will go to Rec Center and return. One can walk a shorter distance if desired.
