Burke/Fairfax CROP Hunger Walk

About Burke/Fairfax CROP Hunger Walk

The needs of the hungry in the Burke/Fairfax community and worldwide are greater than ever.

Because our top priority is to keep ALL OF YOU safe and to do our part to slow the spread of the virus, this year our CROP Hunger Walk will be virtual. We will kick off on Monday, November 1st and end on Sunday, November 14th.

Preparing for your walk:

• Register and set up your team page online so you don’t have to handle cash and checks and to make it easy for people to join your virtual team and donate to you.

• Recruit walkers and sponsors, as always, to support you online. Encourage them to REGISTER, GIVE, and CHANGE THE WORLD.

• Come up with a plan for how your team will participate in the virtual walk. 

Here are a few suggestions:

• Plan a hike on a local trail where social distancing is possible – share about it on social media and in emails.
• Walk at home on your treadmill or in your neighborhood
• Ask individual walkers to come up with their own activity and PLEASE share their ideas with us on Facebook @Burkevacropwalk to inspire other walkers.
• Have your team (or individual walkers) video themselves talking about why they participate in the CROP Walk and why it is important to them. Post it on social media using #EndHungerNow and #BurkeCROPWalk.
• Make sure to tag your friends and potential donors on social media and include the link to your personal/team fundraising page.
How to handle check donations:
For walkers who choose to send a check.
• Make checks payable to CWS/CROP and mail to Earl Smith, CROP Hunger Walk Treasurer, 7305 Reservation Drive, Springfield, VA 22153

This year, Team Captains have the option to order walk materials directly from CWS and have your order shipped to your home address. Here is the link to order materials.

Our local agencies and CWS need our support even more today. Together we can make difference in the lives of our neighbors locally and globally.
