In our 38th 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 2, 2021, we plan to repeat our efforts and raise $100,000.00 as a Virtual Walk
as we did last year.
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 year 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 38 years, we hope to repeat this amount with the generosity
as a virtual walk as we did last year.
