Walk, run or jog for a good cause and a free turkey

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Traveling just 2.57 miles can make a big difference. At 2 p.m. today, walkers, joggers and runners not only have a chance to win a turkey and a pumpkin pie but they have an opportunity to help decrease world hunger.The Community Resolved to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Walk and the Turkey Trot combined to offer an event that is fun and a worthy cause. LA Cares and the Atomic City Roadrunners sponsor the event. Participants will gather at the Sheriff Posse Lodge. The route will lead them toward the Los Alamos Middle School, then to the horse stables on San Ildefonso Road, before returning to the Posse Lodge.Daylight Delights will provide refreshments and beverages will be served. Participants can also take home a turkey or a pie, if their prediction for the time it will take them to complete the course is correct. About 30 turkeys and 20 pumpkin pies will be distributed. Additionally, participants can help give food to people in need by donating money. A check, made out to “Crop Walk,” can be sent to 4723 Sandia Drive, Los Alamos. Also, people can gather pledges. If people donate $10, they will receive a T-shirt and if they give $100, they will receive a sweatshirt.Aaron Goldman, president of LA Cares, said three-fourths of the money raised will go toward Church World Service, which aids people suffering from a catastrophe or who are in desperate need of help.
