This year’s Walpole CROP Hunger Walk will be held on Saturday, September 30th, beginning at 9:30.  The walk will begin and end at the Walpole Congregational Church on the Common.  The route has changed and is a bit shorter than previous years.  There are two options – a full walk of about 3.5 miles and another that cuts the length of the walk to about 3.0 miles by leaving out a small section near the end.  We think that the new route, located closer to the village core, will be very enjoyable!  Copies of the walking route will be available at Galloway Real Estate in Walpole beginning September 1st.

Please consider registering and joining other walkers. Perhaps you have friends that would like to join you!  To learn more about the walk and to register online, simply go to www.crophungerwalk.org/walpolenh and click on REGISTER. You may register as an individual, create a team, or join an existing team already registered.  It’s that easy!  Once you are registered, you can encourage others to DONATE to your walk.  Donators can go to the web address and donate either to to an individual or to a group/team.  Learn more about CROP Hunger Walk 2017 at https://www.crophungerwalk.org.

CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service to raise funds to end hunger and assure clean water in the U.S. and around the world.  Walpole’s Crop Hunger Walk is an ecumenical effort of the Walpole churches we encourage everyone to get involved in this this worthwhile endeavor.  The organizers have designated 25% of all our donations to go to the Fall Mountain Food Shelf.

Please sign in at the Walpole Congregational Church between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 30th.  The  walk will start at 9:30 and last approximately 1-1.5 hours depending upon your pace.  Questions?  Contact Ellie Shaw at ekshaw46@gmail.com or Wendy Harty at wharty05101@gmail.com.
