Indiana County churches, organizations and individuals are invited to participate in the county’s CROP Hunger Walk Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
The event begins and ends on the lawn between Graystone and Calvary Presbyterian churches, on the corner of Church and Seventh streets in Indiana.
Walkers may follow either a 1.6- or 2.1-mile route and enjoy a water stop along the way. The walk is done at an easy pace, calling attention to world and local hunger issues. Participants also may opt to “rock” instead of “walk,” using rocking chairs on Calvary’s front portico. After the walk, participants are invited to enjoy refreshments on the lawn or inside Calvary, depending on weather.
A “mini-walk” for children will begin with a “peanut butter picnic” and follow a route that includes fun activities along the way. Volunteers will guide the children’s walk, and parents or caretakers also are welcome to join this route.
This year, for the first time, friendly, well-trained dogs are welcome to participate. Owners are asked to keep them on leashes. A separate registration table and an end-of-walk treat station will be set up for canine friends.
