Walk Day is TODAY!!!

Walk day has finally arrived and we're excited! Please arrive between 1:00 and 1:45 in order to avoid a long line at check-in. Runners will start a few minutes before 2pm and walkers will head out at 2:00.
Just a few reminders: bring your envelope with the money you raised and turn it in today. If you have more to collect, we'll keep the top yellow form and you'll have 2 more weeks to turn in the envelope. If you collected online, print that form and bring it today.
We've all been hoping for an end to the heatwave and we got our wish! It will be breezy with a slight chance of a shower. WE WALK, RAIN OR SHINE ��
Thank you for your participation and we'll see you this afternoon!

Three, Two, One Day until the 2014 Walk!

Thank you to all who have already committed to walking tomorrow afternoon! Thanks also go to everyone who has sponsored a walker by making a donation! We can still use more participants tomorrow, especially helpers to host rest stops, serve refreshments after the walk, set-up, check-in walkers, help keep track of donations, and take down signs. If you can help, please email  or call 658-7446.

Walkers, when you arrive (between 1:00 and 1:45), be sure to turn in your envelope or bring a printout from your online fundraising site.  You'll be given a special CROP scarf and if you raised $100 or more, a special cloisonne pin.  Since the CROP logo has changed, we were given these "old logo" items that we are able to pass on to this year's participants.  (Come early since we have a limited supply!)

We also have some t-shirts left over from last year.  Although they have 2013 printed on the back, we will give them to our volunteer helpers so you can recognize them in case you have questions or need some help.  

 And it's never too late! You can sign-up to walk or make a donation online at and then follow the links to the Ventura walk.  Here's the direct link
