25th Annual Chapel Hill/Carrboro CROP Hunger Walk


Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 1:30pm


Carrboro Town Commons, 301 W. Main St., Carrboro, NC
4 miles. 90 minutes. 8000 steps.
Join us on March 27 to help end hunger in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and around the world.

The Chapel Hill/Carrboro CROP Hunger Walk is a four-mile stroll through Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and the UNC campus, beginning and ending at the Carrboro Town Commons.  Over the past quarter century, the event has become a festive community tradition and has raised over $1 million dollars to fund hunger relief programs both locally and around the world.  25% of the money raised goes to support the IFC's food programs in Chapel Hill and Carrboro.  The remainder is used by Church World Service for it's international hunger prevention efforts.

Registration begins at 1:30 at the Carrboro Town Commons.  The walk begins at 2:30.  Activities and entertainment will be provided prior to the walk and snacks will be available afterwards. 

Bob Timberlake, North Carolina’s internationally acclaimed artist and a UNC grad, has graciously donated a special limited edition signed reproduction of one of his paintings. For every $100 walkers raise by walk day, they will be given an entry into a drawing to win the Timberlake reproduction. See the painting here:
