Youth groups and Sunday/Sabbath School classes are invited to participate. Create a big colorful banner about what our CROP Walk does. Put your group's name on it, and bring it to the walk. Groups will gather under the Banner Parade sign.

Your group's banner can be made of almost anything – an old sheet, muslin, felt – whatever captures your fancy! You may want to have your group make their CROP banner several weeks before the Walk so that you can display it and use it as publicity for the Walk.

All banners must be registered. Don't forget to bring your registration form if you haven't sent it in by the walk date.

We have a new route. We are walking just the first loop, and continuing down Lowell Road to the Milldam and crossing back to First Parish.

The 2 ¼ mile CROP Walk route starts and ends at First Parish in Concord. The Walk goes through the historic National Park, taking one across the North Bridge. It takes about one hour to walk.

You can sponsor a walker, or just donate to the CROP Walk online through the Concord CROP page of the CROP Hunger Walk web site. Walkers can also accept cash or checks.  Checks should be made payable to CWS/CROP.
