Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk
Team and Individual Walker Registration now open
Our 22nd annual Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk is fast approaching -- Sunday, November 23. After celebrating the record-breaking success of last year’s Walk, raising over $38,900, we are committed to doing even better in our 22nd annual Walk.
And you can be a part of it! Encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join in our efforts to support life-saving programs around the world and also support local efforts to help hungry people in our community. Everyone is welcome to participate in this family-friendly event.
Special thanks to everyone who participated in our local fundraiser at the Fairfax/Pickett Chipotle on November 3. Your combined efforts raised a total of $1,034 -- AWESOME!! Knowing the miracles that Church World Service can accomplish with over $1,000, it WILL change some lives – and that’s what this Walk is all about.
Online Registration for teams and individual walkers is available. Sign up and start getting sponsors. The success of our Walk depends solely on people like you. And because you care, many impoverished families around the world and in our own neighborhood will experience a better tomorrow.
As a participant, you make a difference!
Raise Your Voice

The Burke Walk is one of over 1,400 CROP Walks held each year as part of a nation-wide effort to raise money and awareness for hunger relief. Walkers and their sponsors help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs ̶ from seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans.
Each local CROP Hunger Walk also supports its own community by giving back 25 percent of the funds raised to local hunger-fighting programs.
