    We are so excited to see our totals for the Renton CROP Hunger Walk 2016 totaled $31,653.33. This is the best we have done since the economy slump, and this is our 3rd best walk in our 33 years of walking to help fight hunger. These funds are going to such good use making lives better. Locally, our churches are seeing firsthand what a difference this is making in individual’s lives to get them on their feet. Thank you to all who participated and donated. Your gifts of time and funds are truly gifts from your hearts of God’s love. I am already looking forward to our 2017 CROPWALK, Sunday, May 7!

    Last summer, I was honored to meet Caroline Menach, the principal of St. Elizabeth’s Secondary School for Girls from West Pokot, Kenya. She was visiting Seattle to see my sister, who funded the building of this school in an area of Kenya to provide safety and education for girls in an area that continues to practice female circumcision and early marriage. When Caroline came with me to a service at Fairwood Community United Methodist Church, a conversation came up about our church’s strong participation in the Renton CROP Walk. Caroline said, “Church World Services?” She promptly showed me a photo of her wearing the We Walk Because They Walk t-shirt and told me about the great benefits to her local community in Kenya that had been funded from CROP Walk! Small world! I am walking in the 2016 Renton CROP Walk in Caroline’s honor and in appreciation for the great work of Church World Services, both locally and in faraway places!

    One of the great things about the CROP Walk is that when you walk is very flexible. If you have a conflict on the day of the walk, you are not excluded from participating. You can simply do your walk on another day, and even at another place!

    Wow! 30 years. I started walking 29 years ago when I was in the 3rd grade. That first year, my parents said they would match every dollar that I got donated. Boy were they surprised when they found out they were matching $300! Now we have 3 generations walking and I make sure my donations match my parents original contribution. It’s such a great cause that brings a community together. Happy walking!

    CAUTION: Participating in the Renton CROP Hunger Walk can be addictive.
    Our family started walking 29 years ago, and now our walking is including the grandkids and the granddog. The walk is fun and a great way to get children involved in making a difference for the hungry- making a better world.

    Our youth group is a big participant every year in the Renton crop walk. This can be a good project for your group, please consider participating! Joe M.
