Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk
Team and Individual Walker Registration now open
Plans are underway for our 23rd annual Burke Area CROP Hunger Walk! After celebrating the great success of last year's Walk, raising over $38,000, we are committed to doing even better in our 23rd annual Walk.
The 2015 Burke Walk will be on Sunday, November 22, 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 early local fundraisers. The first one will be at sweetFrog in Burke. (Print sweetFrog flier and turn in with your purchase on August 9.)
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.
