Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk
Team and Individual Walker Registration now open
Plans are underway for our 22nd annual Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk! 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.
The 2014 Burke Walk will be on Sunday, November 23, 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.
Start changing lives by participating in our next local fundraiser at the Fairfax/Pickett Chipotle, corner of Pickett and Main St. (Print Chipotle flyer for November 3.)
Online Registration for teams and individual walkers is also now open. 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.
