CROP Hunger Walk is May 6

A quarter of the proceeds will help local organizations and the other rest will benefit Church World Service.

The Renton CROP Hunger Walk to help the hungry is from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 6.

The walk begins at Liberty Park Shelter and heads east along the Cedar River Trail toward Ron Regis Park before returning to the starting line. The route is six miles long.

Twenty five percent of the proceeds stay local helping the Renton Salvation Army Food Bank, the Margie Williams Helping Hands Food Bank, ARISE, St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank, REACH Center of Hope and REACH Renton Meal Coalition. The other 75 percent goes to Church World Service to help world hunger problems and disaster relief in more than 80 countries.

This is the 35th time Renton has held this walk and according to a media release, the walk has raised more than $656,000 with more than $164,000 going toward Renton agencies.

This year’s goal is to raise $30,000.

Strollers and wagons are OK while no bikes, blades or skateboards are not allowed. Dogs are also permitted but city law requires leash and bagging, the release stated.
