Walk to end hunger

The 2012 Contra Costa CROP Hunger Walk is at 1 p.m. Oct. 7 at 1375 Civic Drive, Walnut Creek. Father Daniel O'Connor, associate pastor of Christ the King Parish in Pleasant Hill, along with his dog, Jamie, will be participating for the third and final time in hopes of doubling the $12,000 they raised last year. The walks are communitywide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local volunteers to raise funds to end hunger.
