Helping to stop hunger is the goal of the 13th Annual Columbia Gorge CROP Walk on Sept. 22.
This fundraiser features walks of 10K and 5K, as well as a "Golden Mile" for senior citizens.
Each walker secures sponsors, who agree to pay any amount they wish to support the walker. The goal of each walker is a sponsorship of $100 or more.
Registration for the walks begins at 1:30 p.m. at Hood River Valley Christian Church, 975 Indian Creek Road. The walk begins at 2 p.m. and finishes at Jackson Park.
Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital will sponsor a picnic at Jackson Park beginning at 3 p.m.
Twenty-five percent of the funds raised at the local CROP Walk go to support the local food banks -- FISH in Hood River and KSDC in Bingen.
