Our Tenth Anniversary
BIRMINGHAM CROP HUNGER WALK
Registration at 1:30 PM
Walk Begins at 2:30 PM
Highland Avenue in Southside Area
In Front of Virginia Samford
THIS SUNDAY! RAIN OR
Due to the weather conditions, we
will be issuing ponchos to all CROP Walk participants. We plan to
walk rain or shine, except in the event of severe weather. Hunger
doesn't stop for bad weather, so neither should we.
The weather situation is, of course, a major consideration around this
big outdoor event. And we are monitoring the weather very closely. As
in the last two years, we are not likely to cancel the event beforehand
due to rain. We will, as in the past, show up with all manner of
positive expectations, ready to set up. And, at the last minute, if
deemed necessary, we will make a decision to go forward or cancel at
We are optimistic and plan to go forward with the event. Our feel
for the situation is that the rain will not be as bad this year as in
the past two years. In fact, there is a good chance it might even clear
up enough to actually have the event. We expect the walk will take place
under nothing more severe than drizzle or light mist conditions.
Here are some objective weather data that give us some hope for the
weekend, especially Sunday…
High Temp 75° / Low Temp 60° / Good chance of showers and
thunderstorms by afternoon / Hours of rain: 3 / Rain potential: 1 inch
/ Severe weather threat: None
High Temp 78° / Low Temp 65° / Occasional showers and thunderstorms
/ Hours of rain: 2 / Rain potential: ¾ inch / Severe weather
the James Spann (ABC 33/40 Weather) forecast for the weekend:
Rain will be moving into west Alabama at midday, becoming widespread
during the afternoon and into Saturday night.
Wet at times with occasional showers and thunderstorms. With a large
scale upper trough approaching, we will need to monitor weather
conditions for severe weather potential, but for now it looks like
instability values will be pretty marginal, and the overall risk looks
rather low. Rain amounts of 1-2 inches are likely over the weekend, and
some flooding issues can't be totally ruled out. High temperatures over
the weekend will be in the 70s.

The Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk
is the community coming together to
raise money and awareness for hunger relief... locally and around the
world. Over 2000 CROP Walks happen every year nationwide.
Walkers are asked to obtain pledge dollars from family, neighbors,
colleagues and places of worship for their participation in a 5
kilometer walk (3.1 miles).
Everyone is invited to participate in the Birmingham CROP Hunger Walk.
It is a family walk event, not a race. It's fun for all ages.
Registration and pre-walk
activities begin at 1:30 PM. The walk launches at 2:30
PM. Join us in
Caldwell Park before the start of the walk to socialize with your
fellow walkers and enjoy the activities.

25% of the funds raised stay in the Birmingham area to support local
hunger and poverty fighting agencies. Specifically, the Birmingham
CROP Hunger Walk will support Greater Birmingham Ministries. The remaining money is used to
alleviate hunger and poverty in 80 countries throughout the world.
In addition to assisting the homeless and impoverished families of the
Birmingham area, CROP helps families in the US and around the world who
are victims of disasters like the earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina, refugees in Darfur, the
Indonesia, and African refugees fleeing war and famine in countries like
Sudan or Niger.
CROP also supports long-term development projects in the world's poorest
communities... projects which can break the cycle of hunger and poverty
like agricultural training, health clinics, micro-businesses, schools,
and fresh water wells in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
