Run, Walk or Stroll There's Water for All as We use our Hearts & Soles to End Hunger One Step at a Time
Red Bank CROP Walkers come together each year from all faith groups, schools, community groups and independents all with one thought in mind. We walk to make a difference in someone else's life. We walk to support our 17 local and Church World Service global partners. Participants can choose a short walk to the first water stop and back or as most do the entire 5 mile walk through Little Silver, Fair Haven and Red Bank. Say hello to a new water stop sponsor at stop #2 Two River Community Bank. We have 5 water stops along the way and route monitors to guide our walkers. Students from MAST are shown handing out water to walkers. Garden State Amateur Radio Association Members help with communications to ensure the safety of all. We even have a the Red Bank Senior Center van to pick up tired walkers. No matter your time, running 30 minutes or walking till 4:00 there's "clean" water, apples fro Delicious Orchards and Sickels Market and ice cream from Super Foodtown of Red Bank waiting for you after you pick up your walk certificate at the finish line. Stop by Foodtown and pick up an extra jar of peanut butter, can of rice or beans to help us get to our goal of 12,000 lbs of food for our food collection.
Last year we had nearly 1,000 walkers. We're looking forward to a mostly sunny day with temps near 70 degrees. Anyone not able to come to the walk on Sunday is encouraged to make an online donation through our online donation page on the CWS website. Our online teams have already raised over $17,600 a new record for online donations. We hope to see you all on Sunday Oct. 16th. Registration starts at 12:30 Please be sure walkers under age 18 have sponsor forms signed by parents. Walk start is 1:30 with the Glossbrenner family cutting the ribbon in memory and honor of Sue.
