T- Shirt Sales and Pre-Walk Activities During Registration 1:00-2:00

This is the fourth year of our Heart & Sole T-Shirt; designed by Kara Lee Romanetz. Kara volunteers her graphic skills in designing the shirts and Lenny Wolfe of Varia-Tees volunteers much of his time in printing the shirts for us. This allows us to sell the shirts at a reasonable price and all the profit goes to CROP.  2014 Walk T-Shirts will be sold on the day of the walk by volunteers for $10. We will also have "red" caps available for sale  for $10 to go along with our red, white and blue color scheme this year.

We hope to see hundreds of walkers wearing their Heart & Sole T-Shirts for the walk. Buy a new one from this year or wear one from any of the past few walks. Red Bank CROP Walkers walk with Heart & Sole to CHANGE THE WORLD  &  END HUNGER.

Registration is inside the high school. As you come out take a look at the tri-fold displays presented by our Local Partners. You can learn about where CROP money goes and how it helps feed people! 

Stop by the Banner Poster Contest to view artwork from area students.

We'll have the winning Cardboard Box City displays from a recent 5th Annual Family Promise event. Winning displays were from Holmdel Community UCC, Presbyterian Church at Shrewsbury, and Belmar Presbyterian. 

Don't forget to get your photo taken at the PHOTO OP for CROP sponsored by the Red Bank Reg. Key Club. 

We'll have a table from Oasis Backyard Farms distributing organic bulbs for your winter garden and your kitchen. (donations towards CROP gladly accepted!)

Come early and enjoy the music from DJ John Limyanski.

Warm-ups will be lead by Dorianne Murray; the yoga and dance teacher from Red Bank Reg. HS. Please gather around  1:40 just to the left of DJ John. 

The weather looks like it will cooperate again this year! We walk RAIN or SHINE! Come early, bring friends and help us to feed our hungry neighbors!

News Falsh! Five Miles too long? A Shorter Sunday STROLL for All Ages Works - You are Never Too Young to be a CROP Walk Hero!



Our hope is to "Change the World" and "END Hunger!" You can help us to do this by bringing the kids and teaching your children the value of caring for your neighbors. It starts right here at home with a short sunday stroll to Eastside Park. The kids will enjoy meeting our characters during registration from 1:00 to 2:00. Start a tradition and be sure to get stop by the PHOTO OP for a group photo taken by the Red Bank Regional HS Key Club. 

This year our Chubby Penguin Parties will be bringing Elsa and Anna from the movie Frozen.  The kids will have fun meeting them during registration. At the park you can stop have a swing, play for a bit then head back to school for ice cream donated by Super Foodtown and apples donated by Sickels Market and Delicious Orchards.

 If you want to walk further than Eastside Park follow the crowd and if needed you can ask for a ride back to the high school at any water stop. Rides are provided by the Red Bank Senior Center. Pictured below is Wilhelmina Vaughn, administrative assistant at the Senior Center. 

We are grateful to the Borough of Red Bank and driver Lester Colquitte for his time and donation of service to our walk. We all work together to be sure that our walk is open and comfortable for all ages.

We'll be looking for you on Sunday, October 19th. at Red Bank Regional High School. We'll be there cheering you on as you walk to end hunger in our world!
