|The Peninsula Crop Hunger Walk will be held on Sunday, October 17. The Crop Walk raises money for food, clean water, tools, disaster response, and more for those in need both locally and worldwide. The route for this year’s walk will start and finish at Grace United Methodist Church, 1209 Country Club Lane, Newport News. Registration begins at 1:15pm, and the walk starts at 2pm.
