The 34th an­nual In­dian Val­ley CROP Walk will take place this Sun­day, Oct. 14.

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.
