OSAGE — The 2017 Crop Hunger Walk, with a goal of $7,500, will be held Sunday, Oct. 15, starting at the First United Methodist Church, 819 Main St., Osage.
Registration begins at 1 p.m. Following a prayer, the Walk will get underway at 1:30 p.m. The Walk, with a route within the city, ends at the First United Methodist Church where refreshments will be served.
The 2016 CROP Hunger Walk raised $1,847 for area food banks and $4,553 to Church World Service for projects around the globe.
Participants are asked to bring one canned good on the day of the walk for the Mitchell County Food Bank. Funds raised help food banks in both Mitchell and Floyd County.
The main route is three miles long, but a shorter route is also included for those who don’t want to walk the three miles.
Organizers would like to encourage people of all ages to walk and enjoy what is hoped to be a beautiful fall day.
The local Walk is always a community effort, say organizers. They appreciate all the help received to make the walk a successful event each year.
