Stamping out hunger one step at a time

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Every year, approximately 2,000 communities around the country take part in the Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty Hunger Walk, in an effort to take a stand against hunger and help those in need. Los Alamos is no exception.
This year, the CROP Hunger Walk/Turkey Trot will be at 2 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Los Alamos Middle School and will feature a 2.57-mile family fun walk/run. Those participating in the walk get sponsors who donate money for their efforts. 25 percent of donations go to local food pantry LA Cares, while 75 percent of the donations go toward global hunger relief efforts.
Aaron Goldman started the Los Alamos CROP Walk in 1997. In 2001, the Turkey Trot, coordinated by Ted Williams, combined with the CROP Walk, to form a family event. According to the Atomic City Roadrunners Web site, “Goldman and Williams knew each other through running events and originally met through the Atomic City Roadrunners and pace races and other running activities.”
