The first Sunday in November hundreds of folks from around the foothills converge at Harmon field at 2 p.m.
They come ready to be part of a world changing event. The CROP Walk brings attention to a problem that plagues our world, hunger. Walkers raise funds, but mostly raise awareness to the fact that many people of the world lack the basics of food, shelter and clean water. Each year people of all ages come to Harmon field to make a statement, “Let’s change the world.”
To make the walk a success we need walkers, donors and we also need sponsors to help cover the local costs of the walk. For only $100 you or your organization can be a sponsor of a great cause, have your organization listed in our advertizing as well as do some great things for people. Your sponsorship will help pay for tee shirts, rentals and advertising. Come enjoy the most beautiful season of the foothills, take a walk with some fantastic people and change the lives of the inhabitants of this planet.
We are looking for you, your church, club, organization or business to come help us change these hunger statistics. Join us for the Foothills CROP Walk against Hunger, 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 4 at Harmon field.
