Indian Valley CROPWALK set to take place Sunday
The 34th annual Indian Valley CROP Walk will take place this Sunday, Oct. 14.
The walk will begin at Souderton Mennonite Church, 105 W. Chestnut St., Souderton. Registration begins at 1 p.m., and the walk starts at 1:30 p.m.
The purpose of a CROP Walk is to raise money for Church World Service to help end hunger around the block and around the world. To date, the Indian Valley CROP Walk has raised $275,815, with 25 percent of those funds coming back to the local community to support the Meals on Wheels program.
This year, the CROP Walk is partnering with Keystone Opportunity Center and denerations of Indian Valley. The route and distance have been changed to a 5K Walk, a 1-Mile Walk and One-Hour Rock-a-thon. The 5K and 1-Mile Walk will begin at Souderton Mennonite Church. The One-Hour Rock-a-thon will be at denerations of Indian Valley, 259 N. Second St., Souderton.
Walkers are asked to bring pantry items for Keystone Opportunity Center’s food pantry. The walk will go directly through the food pantry from the West Chestnut Street parking lot out to Main Street. Pantry items can be dropped off at Keystone at the beginning of the walk.
There will be free CROP Walk T-shirts for all participants with $25 or more in pledges.
Interested participants can sign up online at www.cropwalk.org or at the walk.
