Walking to End Hunger | VideoMichelle San Miguel | 10/14/2012
More than a hundred people were at the CROP Walk for Hunger in Bismarck Sunday to raise awareness about hunger and homelessness. Children were encouraged to take part in activities that showed just how difficult it can be to live in a third-world country by carrying buckets of water over their heads.
"It`s like a lot harder for people like to get water. We can just turn our faucets on, but they have to walk like a while with a big bucket of water," said 14-year-old Macy Merkel, who attended the walk.
"We walk to- to show our support for people who walk hours and miles every day to find fresh water and food around the world," said organizer Allison Germolus.
Twenty-five percent of the money raised at the walk stays in Bismarck to address homelessness and hunger issues.
