Vail Daily letter: Walk raised $10,500
June 20, 2013
In May, about 250 walkers participated in a 5K walk through the beautiful paths of Eagle Ranch to show their support for ending hunger locally and globally.
Over $10,500 was raised! This money will help feed families in our valley through the Salvation Army food pantries, as well as people in need throughout the world.
The CROP Hunger Walk of Eagle County could not have taken place without the help of dedicated and generous people.
Many local business owners helped promote the event, donated funds, services and silent auction items, as well as individuals who gave their time to help plan, promote, raise funds and participate in the CROP Walk.
We live in a wonderful and giving community, and this was a great event!
On behalf of all the people who will benefit, thank you! We hope to see you at next year's walk!
