Holy Infant Crop Hunger Walk Team in Need of Walkers and Sponsors

Join or sponsor this Faith First weekend event and continue your Lenten journey in Salesian spirituality. Walk options from 1.8 miles to 4.8 miles!

Holy Infant parishioners are invited to join in on the parish Durham CROP Hunger Walk team. As part of the Faith First weekend, all Faith Formation families, Children’s Faith Development, JYM and TYM, are highly encouraged to participate by walking or raising money.

The walk kicks off at 2:30 PM on Sunday, April 2, starting at the Duke Chapel on Duke's West Campus. There are several walk options for participants:

1. Participants can walk the entire route from Duke University Chapel to East Campus proceeding through the neighboring Walltown community and then return walking through East Campus and finishing at Duke Chapel  (Distance of 4.8 Miles)

Some people may want to participate and raise money to fight hunger, but not be able to walk the full 4.8 miles.  For those we offer the following suggestions:

2. Participants can walk from Duke Chapel to East Campus for a bus pick-up back to Duke Chapel (Distance of 1.8 Miles)

3. Participants can walk from Duke Chapel to East Campus and then back to Duke Chapel (Distance of 2.6 Miles)

Durham CROP Hunger Walk donations are used to support hunger alleviation programs. Money raised is split between two organizations. 75% goes to Church World Service and 25% stays in Durham County and is used by Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA) to help our neighbors in need.  In order to best serve the most vulnerable in our county, DCIA then allocates the 25% to twelve hunger fighting agencies in Durham, including agencies that Holy Infant works with directly like Urban Ministries of Durham, Families Moving Forward and Meals on Wheels. 

Church World Service works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world. Together we reach out to neighbors in need near and far–not with a hand out, but a hand up.
