Join us Sunday, October 19, 2014 for the 36th Annual Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk!

 

Our goal for this year's walk is $360,000.

 

We are walking for hunger at home and abroad.

 

Our Planning Team is working hard to ensure that this year's walk is the best ever. We encourage you to start recruiting others to join your walk team and to determine your 2014 fundraising goal. Our Honorary Co-Chairs, former Charlotte City Councilwoman, Nancy Carter and WBAV 101.9FM Radio Personality, Beatrice "Bea" Thompson and our Walk Day Mistress of Ceremonies, Maureen O'Boyle (WBTV) look forward to walking side-by-side with you as we raise money to help our neighbors in need.

 

Since this is our 36th year, we are encouraging walkers to join us in the Power of 36 Challenge!  To be a part of the challenge, make a personal commitment to contribute a minimum of $36 and to encourage others to support your efforts with a pledge of at least $36.  In addition to this being our 36th anniversary, the number 36 is significant because it represents lives saved.  

 

Every $36 dollars raised saves the lives of two infants who are at-risk for malnutrution and living in poverty in countries all around the world.  Each $36 contribution provide live-saving micronutrients that will feed two infants for the first 1,000 days of life.  Locally, your donation of $36 allows our local food bank to feed a family of four for nearly two and a half weeks. A contribution of $36 allows our local food pantries to provide fifteen children with a week's supply of fresh dairy products such as yogurt and cheese, which is so important for strong bones and healthy teeth.

Please note, our NEW Walk Venue: 

We have selected Independence Park as the new starting and ending venue for the 2014 Walk.  The park is located at the corner of Hawthorne Lane & East 7th Street.   The 2014 Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk route is approximately 3.8 miles.  For more information, contact our office at 704-333-WALK (9255).  

 

Together, we are walking this road to end hunger one step at a time.
