Walk. Give. Change the world.
Our community believes in ending hunger. And, in 2020, we will continue to fight against the new challenges of disease and disaster that leave people hungry. Join with us in raising funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need this year.
Walkers have reported $400 in online and offline gifts!
Find more details here.
Our 46th Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk will be Virtual, but the need could not be more real: cwsglobal.org/looking-ahead-the-long-term-cost-of-covid-19/
We will be walking individually or in small groups (if choosing this option, please observe proper social distancing and we encourage wearing face masks). Check back for more details, but our neighbors struggling with hunger and poverty here in Washtenaw County and around the world need us to come together (even if apart) now more than ever.
We will virtually come together on Walk Day via our Facebook page and by you all emailing us photos or posting them here on the page while on your socially distanced Walks around Ann Arbor. This is where we also make real-time announcements in regard to our Walk.
We will have a Virtual Send-Off on Walk Day at 2 p.m. that we will stream here on the Facebook page with special guests and encourage all walkers to tune-in for that!
How should you prepare?
