Join us at Caldwell Park to walk away poverty and hunger Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 2:30!

The CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) walk is a community event calling on neighbors to walk together to take a stand against hunger and poverty in our world.

If you want to fight hunger around the block and around the world join us for the Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk.  We encourage the active involvement of teams and individuals from public and private schools, civic and cultural groups, area businesses and all faith groups.

There is no fee to participate but each walker is encouraged to raise at least $100.  25% of the money you raise will benefit stay right here in Birmingham and 75% will help international poverty relief efforts. The Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk hopes to raise $30,000 in 2010.  And every walker gets a free CROP Walk t-shirt!
