Miles for Meals 5K
Miles for Meals is a fun opportunity for all ages to participate in raising funds and awareness to end senior hunger in our community. Proceeds will benefit Meals On Wheels of Senior Citizens, Inc.
$25 through April 24th
$30 through May 15th
$35 at packet pickup and race day

Proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels of Senior Citizens, Inc. Through the Meals on Wheels program, Senior Citizens, Inc. delivers more than 1,800 hot nutritionally balanced meals each day to seniors throughout coastal Georgia. In many cases, these seniors are homebound and this one daily meal is their only source of sustenance. More than 500 seniors, at or below the Federal poverty line, await nutrition support in Chatham County alone! Georgia ranks number six on Meals On Wheels Association of America's “Top Ten Hunger States” list, based on a recently released research study, with nearly one in every twelve seniors in Georgia being at risk of hunger.
