The walk be­gan at Soud­er­ton Men­non­ite Church, and par­tic­i­pants could chose be­tween 5K and 1-mile routes. The walk took par­tic­i­pants through the food pantry at Key­stone Op­por­tu­ni­ties Cen­ter, where they could drop off do­na­tions.

For the first time this year, Key­stone part­nered with Gen­er­a­tions of In­dian Val­ley, with Gen­er­a­tions host­ing an hour-long Rock-A-Thon.

The CROP Walk raises funds for Church World Ser­vices’ ef­forts to end hunger, with 25 per­cent of funds go­ing to the lo­cal Meals on Wheels pro­gram.
