Marty Colchamiro is one of the volunteers of The Hunger Walkathon West CROP Walk, a community event for the Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Melrose Park and Maywood, IL as well as the Austin Neighborhood in Chicago, IL. Each spring they hold a "walk" and raise funds to help with hunger issues both here and around the world. In their 37th year on May 3, 2020 they held their annual CROP Hunger Walk. They raised $100,000.00 on this day, the most ever in our history, although they beat it the next year as you can hear in this podcast. Marty is a podcast himself and you can find the episodes he makes about their walk via this site https://www.hwwcrop.org/podcasts
During our conversation, there is a moment when Marty is not able to remember the name of Michele Zurkowski Executive Director Beyond Hunger, https://www.gobeyondhunger.org/ and he wanted to be sure she was also properly acknowledged.
On their website, you can also find their social media handles, among others Twitter.
We made a special Playlist #CWSsongs consisting of songs chosen by many of our podcast guests.
