WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Sisters Judy Peck, Julie Martin and Heather Blount have plans for the first Sunday of every October. "We walk every year" in the CROP Hunger Walk, Martin said. "Now our children walk. " "Our parents are here," Blount said. For more than two decades, the family has participated in the CROP Hunger Walk. The sisters were among 93 walkers who raised money and circled the Waynesboro Area Senior High School track on Sunday to fight hunger. Twenty-five percent of donations benefit local causes like The Lunch Place and New Hope Shelter, the Rev. Robert Cook said.

CLEAR SPRING - Dinnertime Friday night and lunch on Saturday might have been called a "happy meal," but for the youths participating in the 30-hour famine at Blair's Valley Church of God, the choices were limited to water or Gatorade. "I realize you should always be grateful for what you have," said Heather Fridley, 14, as she began her 27th hour without food Saturday afternoon. Heather was one of about 20 youths who participated in the event Friday and Saturday through Blair's Valley Church of God. She signed on at the urging of her friend, Kristina Faith, 14, who is a member of the church's youth group.
