This community event brings so much joy to Charlotte and now adding a little competition for the youth will make it grow even more.

"They have a youth challenge this year, which isn't always every year, and for the $250 that is raised, for three youth or more, and that will be matched by additional $125,"

$450,000 has been raised over the years in Crop Walk, the goal this year is $20,000, each organization is proud of it's partnerships and sponsors.

"We are thankful with our partnership with Applebee’s and with Culvers who are doing dine to donate both support Crop Walk,"
