REGISTRATION: 12:30 p.m.
WALK BEGINS: 1:00 p.m.

The people of Muskegon have been walking together in the CROP Hunger Walk for more than 38 years! Together, raising awareness and resources for people locally and globally who are challenged to meet their basic needs, thousands have participated and shared their gifts! This year our goal is to have 360 participants join us on Sunday afternoon, October 1 at 1:00 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church, to join in a vicarious experience of walking in the footsteps of many who must walk every single day for their food, water and basic needs.

Incentive Challenge:
We have a special incentive this year. A donor will share a matching gift of $250.00 for every youth group that raises $250.00. Thank you!

Our vision is for all of God’s people who struggle and are challenged with food insecurity. The first fruits of the Walk will address local need through the ministry of (4 listed), but we also believe God calls us to reach out beyond ourselves, meeting the needs of the global community. We are very intentional about starting in our own “Jerusalem” but not stopping there, and sharing with those who are put in our path from around the world. The 38th Muskegon CROP Hunger Walk will touch the lives of people here and around the world!

CROP Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide, throughout the United States -- and right here in Muskegon! -- to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow. Each year some two million CROP Walkers, volunteers, and sponsors put their hearts and soles in motion, raising over $16 million per year to help end hunger and poverty around the world -- and in their own communities. And you are part of it!
