Greensboro, NC -- Thousands of walkers and runners came together in downtown Greensboro Sunday for the 2012 Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk and Run.

The annual event, which kicked off at NewBridge Bank Park Sunday, is meant to help families all around us put food on their tables.

A portion of the funds raised from the 5K race go to Potter's House Community Kitchen at Greensboro Urban Ministry, and the rest goes to Church World Services to feed families around the world.

Last year, the event raised more than $220,000. Officials hope this year's walkers and runners can help them do it again.

In its 31 years, the CROP Walk has raised more than $4.65 million, with $1.16 million going to Potter's House.
