Miles for Meals on Wheels Virtual 5K Run, Walk, or Roll June 1 – June 26
Join us for our biggest FUNdraiser of the year
At your own pace in your own space June 1-26
In-Person at the WASI Campus June 26th
Due to lingering concerns about group events, WASI will host the 5K both in-person and virtually. We have also added a virtual silent auction which begins May 15 and ends June 1, 2021 at 3 pm.
The virtual 5K will run from June 1-26 and our in-person event will be held outdoors on Saturday, June 26 at the WASI campus. On that Saturday, registration begins at 9 am and the race/fun run starts at 10 am. The silent auction will be the kick-off for our biggest fundraiser of the year, which as you know benefits Meals on Wheels of Mat-Su.
Our goal is to raise $75,000 to fund 5,427 meals. Our Meals on Wheels program will deliver over 120,000 meals this year, which is a 41% increase from last year. With your help, we can continue to provide a daily wellness check by our staff and trained volunteers. Besides a daily meal, this greatly-needed human connection is a lifeline for a lonely and sometimes forgotten group. Whether it is because of income, lack of mobility, or social or cognitive roadblocks, for many, Meals on Wheels is an integral part of their diet, budget, and social life. It may be the only full meal they get in a day. It really is that important.
Together we can deliver!
