Walpole Crop Hunger Walk 2017

 

    This year’s Walpole Crop Hunger Walk will be held on Saturday, September 30, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The route has changed and is a bit shorter, with two options – a full walk of about 3.5 miles and another that cuts the length of the walk to about 3 miles. The new walk is also located closer to the core of the village rather than on country roads, and we think it will be very enjoyable.

 

Church World Services Project

    CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by religious groups, businesses, schools and others to raise funds to end hunger in the U.S. and around the world. Walpole’s Crop Hunger Walk is an ecumenical effort of the Walpole churches but everyone is welcome to get involved in this worthwhile endeavor. The organizers have designated 25% of all our donations to go to the Fall Mountain Food Shelf. 

    We hope to have a good representation from the Walpole Unitarian Church and from the town this year. Please consider registering and joining other walkers. Perhaps you have a friend or two that would like to join you! To register online, simply go to www.crophungerwalk.org/walpolenh and click on register. It’s that easy. Once you are registered, you can encourage others to donate to your walk. To do that, one can go to that same web address and donate either to an individual or to a group/team.

Registration

    If you would rather not register online, there will be registration/donation envelopes available at the Family First picnic on September 3rd and at the church each Sunday prior to the walk, along with instructions and a map for the new route. You can also find all of this at the Congregational Church of Walpole on the Common on walk day. Please sign in at the church between 9 and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday Sept. 30. The walk will start at 9:30 and last approximately 1-1.5 hours depending upon your pace. Questions? Call or email Wendy Harty at 802-463-3153 or wharty05101@gmail.com
