Our area is about to engage in a huge community effort to fight hunger. After determining that Crop Walk no longer met the needs of our area, a team of dedicated area hunger leaders have been meeting and planning a new walk that would focus more on meeting local needs, but still offer opportunity to reach out to the hungry at other levels. As a result of their work, a non-profit, 501(c)( 3 ) organization called the Coulee Region Hunger Walk, Inc. has been established with the goal of hosting a yearly walk/run. Their mission statement – “We Walk With Our Neighbors to End Hunger” – echoes the group’s desire to join resources and the efforts of area community organizations and churches in addressing the issue of hunger.
Congregation Sons of Abraham is one of the founding sponsors of the Coulee Region Hunger Walk.
The first Coulee Region Hunger Walk/Run is scheduled for Sunday, October 13th. The walk/run will begin and end at the Myrick Park Main Shelter in La Crosse. Registration will begin at noon along with music and games. There will be a sendoff at 12:45 with the run/walk starting at 1:00 pm. Following the walk there will be food and drawings for raffle prizes. Each walker will be given tickets for a chance to win prizes.
Join Team Congregation Sons of Abraham, in person or in spirit. We hope to have pledges of a minimum of $20 each whether you walk or run or choose to support with a check. Checks should be made out to Coulee Region Hunger walk. We’ll pay as a group on October 13th, or you can deliver your check to Maureen. Maureen will be in touch with you about which local food organization you choose to support–the default will be Share the Bounty. Contact Maureen with any questions.
