Before this year's walk, Wheelock said, children can have their faces painted, and music will be provided by the Norman Public School's Manyawi World Music Ensemble and a contingent of the Pride of Oklahoma, OU's marching band.

Members of local school and church choirs will lead the walk by singing the African marching song “Siyahamba.”

An after-walk celebration will include a hot dog cookout provided by First American Bank and dance music by disc jockey Adrian Buendia and Nexus Productions of Norman.

Twenty-five percent of CROP Walk proceeds will be donated to Food and Shelter Inc., which provides emergency housing for homeless families and meals to the hungry. The remaining proceeds will support hunger relief efforts of the Church World Service across the United States and more than 80 countries.

CROP Walk Chairwoman Jane Pennington said local CROP walks have raised more than $145,000 over the past 10 years.
