October Opportunity: CROP Walk

Please join us in supporting the Raleigh CROP Hunger Walk. CUCC has a team walking. There are two ways you can get involved (1) Join the team, or (2) donate. You can do either of these via our team website:

The walk will take place on Sunday October 26. The walk begins at 3 pm. 5k or 1 mile short options available. We begin and end at Marbles Kids Museum, 201 E Hargett St. Registration starts at 2pm. It is a family friendly event and includes a costume contest for the kids.

For further information or for paper registration, please contact Maria Mayorga.

"CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community.

CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs – something CWS has learned through some 67 years of working in partnership around the world."
