The 35th Annual Northwest Connecticut CROP Hunger Walk is this Sunday, Sept. 30. Registration and check-in begin at 1 pm in the Housatonic Valley Regional High School parking lot (246 Warren Turnpike, Falls Village, CT). At 1:30 pm, walkers will begin their 10k trip along the beautiful Housatonic River. Have a dog? Dogs on leashes are welcome!
The NW CT team page can be found online . On that page, you can create your own team or join an existing one, register as an individual walker, sponsor a walker, or make a donation.
CROP Hunger Walks support grassroots hunger-fighting efforts around the world. Up to 25% of the funds raised from the NW CT Walk is allocated to hunger-fighting programs in our own local community via the Northwest Connecticut Food Bank. The Food Bank provides food vouchers and gift certificates to area grocery stores for those in need.
In the past 30 years, participants have raised more than $732,000, with about $200,000 allocated to our local area.
