5 Decades of Walking to End Hunger

5 Decades of Walking to End Hunger

Monday, October 6, 2014

SAFETY is the Order of the Day for our 34th Red Bank CROP Walk . We Walk with Our Feet to Help People Eat!

In the dark of early morning hours of Sunday October 19th our CROP volunteers will be posting directional signs along the route in anticipation of the hundreds of CROP Walkers expected to walk five miles raising funds to end hunger. Volunteers work to ensure the safety of walkers. Our crowd will fill the streets of Fair Haven. Roads will be closed until the first water stop at Eastside Park. 

Our first water stop is staffed by the Tinton Falls and Red Bank Rotary. THANKS! All walkers then need to move to the sidewalks.

Look for directional signs and follow instructions from route monitors who will be carrying CROP STOP Signs!

Volunteer monitors and Fire Police will guide you across the roads. Please pay attention and watch out for each other and traffic! 

Thanks to Trinity Hall HS girls at water stop #2, and the half way water stop #3 at Red Bank United Methodist Church. While you are on Broad Street enjoy the costumes of the Red Bank Halloween Paraders. Be sure to say hello to Short Stop the Clown as she points you towards Little Silver where Red Bank Police will help you to cross and onto Branch Avenue and water stop #4. Thank you to MAST students for staffing this stop. At Sickles Farm, water stop #5, along Rumson Road, the Key Club of Rumson Fair Haven High School will give you your last drink before the end at water stop #6 at Red Bank Regional High School.  

We really appreciate the efforts of the police, fire/police, and  civic and school groups and the Garden State Amateur Radio Association members who coordinate communications by radio all along the route. Thanks to all who keep us safe for all five miles or our Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk.
