Charlotte CROP Walk coming soon

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Each fall, thousands of people in Charlotte walk as a part of a nationwide effort to end hunger.

The Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk raises money to help end poverty and hunger here and abroad.

According to the organization's website, since it's first walk in 1978 Charlotte has raised over $6 million to relieve hunger, with $1.6 million staying in the community.

This year's Crop Walk will be held on October 13, 2013 beginning at Elizabeth Avenue and Charlottetown Avenue in Charlotte.
