Pgh. East CROP Hunger Walk
October 8, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
The Pittsburgh East CROP Hunger Walk is an ecumenical event designed to raise consciousness about world hunger and to raise money to combat hunger. This 6.2-mile walk will be held on Sunday, October 8, and begins at the South Avenue United Methodist Church in Wilkinsburg. Registration begins at 1:00 p.m., and the walk begins at 2:00 p.m.
Walkers, sponsors, and prayers are greatly needed. Since this is also an intergenerational event, we need people of all ages to participate in this ecumenical event.
Seventy-five percent of the money raised by the walkers and their sponsors goes to Church World Service which has been involved in providing emergency relief to hurricane victims along with other national and international relief efforts. The remaining twenty-five percent is returned to assist the local mission work of the East End Cooperative Ministry and the Wilkinsburg Community Ministry. In 2016, the walk raised $25,142.
To participate, please contact Paul Brown through the church office. For more information, you may wish to visit the Facebook page of the Pittsburgh East CROP Hunger Walk or the CROP Hunger Walk website.
