Join us for our modified walk on October 25, 2020!

Thanks to your help, last year’s Boulder County walk raised over $42,000! The planning team is working to hold a MODIFIED CROP WALK during the week of October 18-25th, culminating October 25th 2020. 

Thank you for your commitment to stand for those suffering due to hunger and poverty. So many are out of work, and suffering now. Our partner Community Food Share notes that since the pandemic began, they are giving away more food than at any time in their 39 year history! This spring their total pounds of food distributed have increased by 41%. They are distributing two and even three times more food to some Partner Agencies. 

What does a modified walk mean?  It could mean folks raise funds, set a time and then walk when they can walk, with whom they feel comfortable walking. We encourage folks to walk with their households, in their own neighborhoods with family or friends. Indoor walks, walk challenges, and more can make up this year’s CROP WALK, so please be creative! There are a variety of options. If your group would like to focus together and Walk on Oct. 25th, this is recommended by Church World Service.  All “walks” need to be completed with funds turned in on our final date of  October 25th.

Updates- Where does the money go?

Community Food Share continues to disperse 1 million pounds of food each month! They will receive 24% of the funds this year’s Boulder CROP walk raises.

Bread for the World receives 1% of the funds. It is a grassroots organization that works to pass legislation that supports those in need. Members write letters, call, or even visit their congress folks to help them pass legislation like increasing funding and benefits for those receiving SNAP in the age of COVID. (Supplementary Nutrition Access Program, which used to be food stamps)

Finally, 75% of our funding goes to the international organization Church World Service which right now is preparing to help with disaster relief for both the terrible forest fires and Hurricane Sally. For disasters, they provide clean up kits, blankets, and long term recovery support, as well as globally working with hunger-related projects like sustainable water sources and more.

Sue Ericson reported that previous Boulder CROP WALK T-shirts are currently being sewn into grocery bags to be filled with food and distributed by folks at the Round Pantry in Longmont Colorado. Nancy Hurianek reports that the filled bags will hold groceries for as many as 700-800 families who visit EVERY 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of every month.

The need is great! Thanks for your help in all these projects!

Update 10/10/19 Boulder County Hunger CROP Walk!

We are hoping you can join us Sunday, October 20th for this year’s walk. We’ll start at Westview Presbyterian Church Longmont, beginning 2pm.

CROP Walk is an annual fundraising walk (2 mile, 6.21 mile and 10K run) that works to end
hunger locally and around the world. Locally raised funds also benefit Community Food Share and its partner agencies such as the ROUND PANTRY at Westview Presbyterian Church. This year’s Boulder County CROP Walk will honor Dennis Hurianek’s work as co-chair of the CROP Walk.

CROP Rock!

If you’d like to take part in CROP Walk but don’t feel like you can walk a route, a flexible option is available to you. You can rock while others are walking and you can rock at home, on your porch, at church with friends, at a care facility with loved ones, wherever your favorite rocker is!

CROP Rock will happen on Sunday, October 20, between 2:00 and 2:30 (or longer for those who snooze…)  Arrive by 1:30 if you plan to rock at Westview.

You can register your efforts and raise donations online at  https://www.crophungerwalk.org/boulderco/

Update 9/3/19 Boulder County Hunger CROP Walk!

Westview Presbyterian Church is hosting this year’s Boulder County CROP Hunger Walk/Run on October 20, which will wind around MacIntosh Lake (6.2 miles) or sidewalks around 15th and Hover (flat, accessible, no major street crossings, 2 miles). This year we honor the memory of Dennis Hurianek, long-time Westview, Longmont, and CROP Walk involved citizen volunteer.

Last year, the wakl raised $28,417 for the hungry and had roughly 173 walkers! Our goal for this year is to raise $30,000 with 200 Walkers! WILL YOU JOIN US? Or help sponsor a walker/team?

New this year – CROP ROCK! Those who can’t walk will have a chance to “rock” on the afternoon of the Walk/Run. Details to come! (Looking into how many rockers we can reasonably borrow for the day, among other aspects.)

Also new this year – The longer distance has been carefully routed to provide for those who are 10K runners. Once across 17th/Hover, the route will allow you to practice for your next official run. You will need to be self timed.

For more information, please contact BoulderCropWalk@gmail.com
