ACCA is excited to introduce it’s first ever VIRTUAL race this year for the March for Meals 5K and 12K. This project will help demonstrate the impact that Meals on Wheels has on our local area, state, and nation. It is hard to believe that the United States has 9 million older adults facing the threat of being hungry. The March for Meals 5K and 12K represents the meals ACCA puts out 5 days a week, 12 months a year but we are taking it to another level this year by trying to get someone in every state to run our Virtual race to bring awareness that Meals on Wheels serves people in every state of the US.
How can you help?
Sign Up: Virtual race packets (including bib, t-shirt, and/or medal) will begin to be mailed out on 3/2/2015. Virtual racers signing up after 3/17/2015 will receive packets (t-shirt, bib and/or finisher medal) within 1 week of registration. T-shirts not guaranteed after 3/17/2015 registration. Virtual racers can run anytime, anywhere. That’s the perk to the virtual race. Sign up and run at your convenience. For the actual race on March 28, 2015, the start and finish will be at the Athens Community Council on Aging, 135 Hoyt Street, Athens, GA 30601. Don’t forget to “Show Us Your Finish Line.”
Share: If you see a white state, then we need someone to run in it. If you have friends or family in Alaska or Hawaii, we are especially talking to you. Just kidding but for real, we want to have this map filled up by March 28 to bring awareness to Meals on Wheels.
Show Us Your Finish Line: Please share your virtual race pictures with us with the hashtag #m4m2015 #MFMmoment #myfinishline
