In our 37th year of our annual Hunger Walkathon West CROP Walk in the near west suburbs of Chicago, we continue to be an advocate for those in need of food.
This year, on May 3, 2020, we raised $100,000.00 as a Virtual Walk.
Our support of 10 local charities, as well as the worldwide effort of Church World Service (CWS), who provide assistance in agronomy, infrastructure and best practices for learning about self sustaining ways in their own community to be self sufficient. Learn about their 50 year history.
Due the COVID-19 virus. We modified our walk on Sunday, May 3, 2020 into a Completely Virtual Walk The Walk was Sunday, May 3, 2020 but on your own. "Walk together apart" Then at that time, we walked on our own or with our immediately family. We chose a parking lot; from room to room in your house or apartment; around the block or at a city park. As we walked: text, called or did a video chat with other friends walking at the same time.
With that effort, the same as we have done for 37 years, was done as a virtual walk and the most amount of money we have raised thus far.
