Burke/Fairfax CROP Hunger Walk

Thank You for Supporting our 25th Annual Walk

A Message of Thanks From Our Coordinator:

2017 was an exciting (and successful) milestone year for our annual Burke/Fairfax CROP Hunger Walk as our community celebrated 25 years coming together to improve the quality of life of people suffering from poverty and hunger. On November 19, some 290 individuals from the local community devoted their Sunday afternoon in service to the neediest of the world by walking in our 25th Walk. By putting their caring into action and joining together to change lives, they raised to-date over $31,500. This remarkable outcome is a testament to the compassion and generosity of all the walkers and their sponsors. Grateful thanks to everyone who participated, sponsored, or helped and contributed to the Walk’s success. “You are literally changing lives,” said Rev. John McCullough, President and CEO of Church World Service.

Good news!! You can still donate to the Walk and help to make the year 2018 a happier one for someone in need.

And be sure to join us next November 18, 2018, when we celebrate 26 years of fighting hunger! Thru walking our Walk, we will again demonstrate a shared belief that hunger is not inevitable. There is enough for all. Together, our CROP Walkers are changing lives. These walkers are just like you, people who care enough to help the many impoverished families around the world and in our own neighborhood to experience a better tomorrow. Check this website for future fundraisers as we gear up for our next Walk, and see you on November 18, 2018!!

Much gratitude,
Janet Smith, Walk Coordinator

As a participant, you make a difference!

The Burke/Fairfax Walk is one of over 1,000 CROP Walks held each year as part of a nationwide effort to raise money and aware-ness for hunger relief. Walkers and their sponsors help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs ̶ from seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans.

Each local CROP Hunger Walk also supports its own community by giving back 25 percent of the funds raised to local hunger-fighting programs.

In the past 25 years, more than 6,600 Burke/Fairfax CROP Walkers raised over $482,000 to relieve hunger globally through Church World Service, and over $120,000 to help hungry people in our own community.
