Ending Hunger One Step at a Time!
The Annual Omaha Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Hunger Walk is the second Sunday in October. People from all different faiths, cultures and ages walk together to take a stand against hunger in our world. Together they raise awareness and funds for international relief and development, as well as local hunger-fighting agencies (25% of funds raised).
Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles a day to get food, water and fuel, and to take their goods to market. We walk because they walk!
$72 can provide emergency food for a family or five's needs for a month.
$120 can enable three women to attend literacy classes for a year to change their lives forever.
$1050 can support community-based health, hygiene and sanitation training for an entire community.
PCM has had great teams of walkers in the past and will continue to be a strong supporter of this worthwhile and fun event. What better way to enjoy the beautiful fall weather then a walk with friends!
