Pullman/Moscow CROP Hunger Walk

This year’s CROP Walk is the 29th annual event and will be a 10Km (~6 miles) walk or run on Sunday, October 7th at 1:30 p.m. at the Chipman Trailhead on Bishop Blvd in Pullman at Quality Inn parking lot through downtown and out to Terre View and back.  The walk symbolizes walks taken by those who must go long distances to find food, water, employment or medicine. CROP Walks are Nationwide fundraisers for hunger and disaster relief.

“The recent, increased need at the Pullman and Moscow Food banks is an indication of the urgency to feed local families, so the CROP Walk helps a lot, and it’s fun,” said Mary Carloye, long-time CROP Walk participant and organizer.

The CROP Walk offers an opportunity for individuals to raise money by asking others to sponsor their walk.  Donor envelopes for checks and cash are available at many local churches or call Julia Krauser, 509-432-1513.  Walkers may set up their own page on the CWS Crop Walk website for Pullman-Moscow and request donations made with credit cards. Donations can be in cash or checks payable to CWS/CROP or by credit card through www.cropwalkonline.org.  Just look at the Washington state image and find “Pullman/Moscow CROP Hunger Walk” and donate!

Walkers, or joggers, can go at their own pace.  It’s a casual event for the whole family, for students, business people, or anyone who wants a good outdoor activity.

If you are interested or know any group or business who is interested please contact co-chair Nathan Weller at (509)432-1943 or Julia Krauser the recruitment director at (509)432-1513.  This is a great opportunity to have an impact locally and globally.
