The annual Hamilton County CROP Walk will be held on October 2nd. Pilgrim has a proud tradition of participation in this Church World Service event, and once again we will be one of 20 local congregations of various faiths raising money and awareness for the problem of world hunger. The goal this year is to raise $36,000, with 25% of the money collected going directly to Hamilton County agencies. The walk (not a race) begins at 1:30 PM at the Carmel Gazebo and covers 3.7 miles, much of which is on the Monon Trail. Please contact John Shilling at for registration materials to become a walker or more information on how you can become involved. The best way to either join Pilgrim's team or make a donation is to visit the Hamilton County CROP Walk web site at hamiltoncountycropwalk.org/.
