400 Walk on a Glorious Day

We had a glorious day! The weather was perfect -- approximately 400 walkers. We sold 32 T-shirts (which netted a $160 profit for CROP) -- 30 churches were represented!

We had 9 'new' ones this year ... including Rev. Cain and 20 others from Unitarian Universalist church, Arlington Christian (Rev. Kris Bentley), Victory Christian, South Elkhorn Christian, Crossroads Christian, Antioch Missionary Baptist, Centenary Methodist, 1st Christian ( Frankfort), Pisgah Presbyterian ... and a few people that just 'walked up' Sunday afternoon who had heard about the Walk via God's Pantry or the newspaper.

To date, pledges and cash: nearly 11,000$$. We estimate that this is probably about 60 % of the total we expect to eventually receive. WOW, we are really pleased! Contributions are being accepted for another month. You may contribute on-line here.

Also, walkers loved the new route, lots of compliments and youth 'stations' were meaningful. Our best walk yet!! More diversity represented also!

Next year's walk is set for the last Sunday in September (9/28/2008).
