New Bremen CROP Hunger Walk to be held on Oct. 11


Staff report



NEW BREMEN — In the last 25 years, CROP Hunger Walks have raised more than $300 million to help people struggling to feed their families – both around the world and around the corner.

This year’s walk will be held on Sunday, Oct. 11 and walkers are encouraged to put on their favorite super hero shirt or costume.

Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. at the Bremenfest Park shelter house. Walkers will take off at 2 p.m. and head down the Miami Erie canal path toward the Kuenning Dicke Park. Anyone with a stroller or wagon may continue the paved route on the canal path. Maps of the Kuenning Dicke Park will be handed out upon request.

Up to 25 percent of the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks benefit the communities where they take place, by supporting local food banks, pantries, community gardens and other hunger-fighting initiatives.

The New Bremen CROP Hunger Walk donations locally to Agape of St. Marys and Loaves and Fishes in Wapakoneta. The remaining monies are given to Church World Service to be used to help people all over to the world obtain access to clean water, nutritious food, sanitation systems, and new opportunities, to name a few.

Following this year’s walk, there will be refreshments, fellowship, and activities for the kids.
