Isn’t it great to feel good about helping to end hunger and having a great time with friends and family at the same time! Each year Meals on Wheels of Summerville hosts a variety of events that give us an opportunity to reach our community and enjoy fellowship while building the support we need in serving Summerville.
March For Meals and 3rd Annual “Turtle” 5K FUN RUN/WALK March 25, 2017
We are proud to be a part of the national campaign promoting Meals on Wheels programs across the United States. Each March city mayors and prominent citizens come to meet with our recipients while assisting with meal delivery and thanking volunteers for their service to the community. It is a long standing tradition of which we are very proud and thankful.
Also, in March 2015 we hosted our First Annual “Turtle” 5K FUN RUN/WALK in Honor of Lena Cox, a long-time volunteer and friend of Meals on Wheels. Many ran or walked in the Miles for Meals race in support of the March for Meals national program. The 2017 “Turtle” Fun Run/WALK preparations will make the race even better – join us at the race, support Meals on Wheels, and encourage others to do so!
The 2017 run is on March 25th and begins at 8:30am with the walk begins at 9am. Packet Pick Up will be at Fleet Feet in Summerville on March 24th from 10am-7pm. Day of registration and Packet Pick Up will be from 7:00am until 8am. The race begins promptly at 8:30am.
