MARSHFIELD – The 29th Marshfield Area CROP Walk against hunger will be held Sept. 29
The walk starts at Wildwood Park Shelter No. 1. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m.; send-off program is at 1 p.m., with the walk at 1:15 p.m. There are six-, three-, and one-mile routes.
The sponsor, Church World Service (CWS), works with local people to develop water supplies, more efficient ways of farming, and other ways of meeting basic needs as well as providing emergency food.

Participants are asked to bring their own water bottles, though water will be available. Everyone is welcome to walk; individuals under 18 will need a parent’s permission.
