Crop Walk, October 13

The Annual CROP Walk is scheduled for Sunday, October 13 from 2:00-5:00 p.m., starting and ending at Grace United Methodist Church at 1900 Boston Boulevard in Lansing.   The route is 6.2 miles (10K).  Members are encouraged to walk, rock, or support those who do through donations and prayer. In addition to raising funds to alleviate hunger, the walk itself draws attention to the problems of hunger and income inequality.

The money gathered by walkers will be used to combat hunger in Lansing, the U. S., and the world. In Lansing, one-fourth of the funds go to agencies such as Advent House and the Garden Project of the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

In our 40 years of participating, kids as young as six weeks old, elders over 90, and people in between have participated as walkers and rockers, garnering over $300,000 to fight hunger.

Kids walk, play football, and enjoy the CROP Walk in southwestern Lansing.  On Oct. 13, 2010, one of them wrote, “it was so so so so so so so so so so so so so fun.”
