The Boulder CROP Hunger Walk
The Boulder County CROP Hunger Walk takes place every October as a part of a nationwide effort to raise funds to help alleviate hunger and poverty here in the United States and internationally. The walk has been raising funds since 1985 and works to support the grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts of Church World Service (CWS) around the world. This walk also helps to fund hunger-fighting programs such as Community Food Share serving Boulder and Broomfield counties as well as Bread for the World.

Collect money up front
Walkers will need to collect the money up front (instead of pledges) and then give it to their recruiter who will bring it with them to the walk.
You can also Raise your funds online
If you wish, you can also bring a food donation to the walk. This year we are hoping for cereal or canned food which will be donated to the Round Pantry.
Sign your waiver
If you have not collected all of your money on the day of the walk, please bring the top sheet of the envelope to the walk. We need the signed waiver on this sheet from every walker. Please note that minors should also have a guardian’s signature.
Return all Envelopes
All envelopes (used or unused) must be turned back in. This is for auditing purposes. We are held accountable for all envelopes that Church World Service gives us; therefore we’re holding you accountable for any envelopes that we give you.
Each recruiter needs to collect any envelopes that are not turned in the day of the walk. They will need to be turned in to the treasurer, Leslie Sutton.
How long is the walk?
Most walkers take between 2 and 2 1/2 hours to complete the (less than) 10K walk. There will be a shorter loop for those unable to walk 10 km.
