It's Walk Time!

Our community's "Ending Hunger One Step at a Time" Walk is just around the corner! Many dedicated recruiters have spent the past few weeks inspiring and energizing their congregations to participate in the Greater Lex. CROP Hunger Walk. Their spirit of service has not only motivated church members but also their families, friends, co-workers, neighbors to Walk as a witness to fight hunger and poverty and to raise funds for our local God's Pantry and Church World Service.

GOOD NEWS! We already have $2,090 donations on! It is very hopeful that we can reach, or maybe even surpass our $22,000 goal since our fundraising will continue for another month!

A few reminders re: Walk Day:
  • Registration begins at 3PM on Sunday, Sept. 26 in back parking lot of 2nd Presbyterian.
  • One can park in the Goodwin Sq. parking lot across the street.
  • Bring your yellow registration sheet from the donation envelope.
  • Some have already registered on line.
  • EVERYONE needs to register and forms will be available when you sign-in.
  • T SHIRTS can be purchased for $12.00.
  • A donated gift basket of organic skin products from Insignia Salon will be 'raffled-off.'
  • The 3 mile experiential Walk will begin at 3:30PM with an unique send-off.
  • Please bring your own water but we will have a water stop at Newman Center on Rose St.
  • NO bicyles, skates, skateboards, etc. will be allowed due to safety issues.
  • Wagons, strollers, wheelchairs are definitely OK.
  • Crossing guard volunteers will be at the busier intersections around campus.
  • PLEASE do not jaywalk.
We want everyone else to know why we are walking! Please remember to bring a sign to carry (create your own:), wear your CROP Hunger Shirt, group youth shirts, carry your church banner, etc.

Many Thanks to everyone who has willingly given their time, energy and donations to help MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of our neighbors here and around the world. My team and I are looking forward to Walking with you and yours Sun. 26th!

Peace and Joy,
     Judy, Alice, Suzi and Beth
