Home Newsroom 198. Trick or Treat Trot & The CROP Hunger Walk

Halloween is still a couple of weeks away, but if you have an awesome costume that you just can’t wait to show off, I have the perfect reason for you to get all dressed up this weekend. The Barrington Breakfast Rotary is hosting the fifth annual “Trick-or-Treat Trot” this Sunday morning and you’ll be ahead of the pack if you come in your costume.

Runningin the Trick or Treat Trot

Kids 100 Yard Dashes and the Trick or Treat TrotRegistration for the 5K run and 2K “Spooky Stroll” starts at 7AM on Sunday morning and the races start at 8. After the races, there will be a 100 yard “Haunted Hustle” for kids age 2-12. Your lil goblins can search for hidden bones in a huge haystack, guess the weight of pumpkins and much more. And a cast of characters (a.k.a. “really good sports”) will be serving up Halloween fun for children of all ages.

Barrington Breakfast Rotary Trick or Treat Trot

There are prizes for best costumes, so dress the whole family up, dig out the old devil suit or your disco duds and trot on down to the party. The race kicks off in the Harris Bank parking lot at 209 South Grove Avenue. It costs $28 to enter the races, $12 for the Haunted Hustle and each participant will receive a goody bag and a long-sleeved t-shirt. Proceeds will benefit the Barrington Breakfast Rotary, a group that supports great community programs for schools, kids and adults in Barrington. You can register now by clicking HERE, you can also register and pick up packets at Good Shepherd Health and Fitness Center or at tomorrow’s Scarecrow Festival from 11-2PM at Barrington’s Memorial Park.

And if you’re not an early riser, but you want to get some excercise while supporting a great cause on Sunday, the 28th annual Barrington Area CROP Hunger Walk is going on in the afternoon starting at St. Anne Catholic Church at 120 N. Ela Street.

Fight Hunger with the Barrington CROP Walk

Registration starts at 12:30, the walk begins at 1PM and all money raised will go to programs that help feed the hungry locally and around the world.  Here’s a little history on the CROP walk:  When CROP began in 1947 (under the wing of Church World Service, which was founded in 1946), the name was an acronym for the Christian Rural Overseas Program.  It’s primary mission was to help Midwest farm families to share their grain with hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia and it’s a mission that is still going strong in communities everywhere.

25% of the money raised for the Barrington CROP hunger walk will be reserved for programs that feed the hungry locally. If you’d like to make a donation online or just learn more about the initiative, click HERE for more information.   Participants in last year’s event raised $43,000. Wow.  Pretty sweet for a Sunday afternoon!
