On Oct. 8, the Pittsburgh East community will celebrate its 40th year of walking to end hunger one step at a time. The oldest walk in the country, is sponsored by Church World Service (www.churchworldservice.org). 25% of what we raise is returned as grants to East End Common Ministries and Wilkinsburg Community Ministry. Youth and adults from this congregation will gather at the South Avenue United Methodist Church at 1:00 to gather in preparation for the 10K loop through Squirrel Hill and back. The walk distance is 6.2 miles. Walking time is approximately 2.5 hours.
You can participate by either walking or sponsoring a walker. You can also go to their website: http://www.crophungerwalk.org/pittsburgheastpa
to electronically send money or sponsor a walker. Watch for upcoming bulletin inserts, emails and/or announcements.
