Hunger Walk 2018
It was a bright, cool morning at Crown Point on Saturday, April 28, 2018. At 6:30 a.m., several volunteers started to arrive, setting up equipment and getting everything organized. Little by little, people drifted in and signed in for this year’s greatly anticipated, annual Hunger Walk. Our new Crown Point location could not have been more beautiful with the sprawling scenery and the morning sun beginning to warm all who arrived.
Attendees were greeted by volunteers, as well as Emma’s Gut Bucket Band who happily volunteered for this important, annual event. Fun, upbeat background music accompanied the interaction with volunteers and walkers with a total of 155 attendees. All supporters quickly recognized the need to resolve the pain of those who are food-deprived in our community, and wanted to do something about it — they were there to walk for hope and walk in the name of hunger.
Brad Cannon, CCSA President welcomed everyone and Rev. Craig Dorval from St. Mark’s United Methodist Church provided a spiritually uplifting opening prayer. Then the 5k walk began. The photos taken that day revealed the smiles and fun that was had by all. CCSA welcomes all new-comers and repeat supporters to this very special, annual Hunger Walk event.
Thank you to all who volunteered to put our community event together! And thank you to all the walkers who showed their care and concern for those less fortunate in our community. You have truly made a difference through your participation and support!
On behalf of the CCSA Board of Directors, Advisory Council, Staff, Volunteers and most of all our Clients, WE THANK YOU!
