Bring your four-legged friends to Miles for Meals 5K on Saturday, May 20, 2017 in Daffin Park at 8 a.m. and run with the veggies to help Senior Citizens Inc. (SCI) FIGHT TO END SENIOR HUNGER in our community! Miles for Meals is a fun 5K walk/run perfect for all ages.
Race proceeds will benefit SCI’s Meals on Wheels program, which brings friendly smiles and hot, healthy meals to more than 1,000 seniors throughout Chatham, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham Counties each day. In many cases, these seniors are homebound and this one daily meal is their only source of sustenance and interaction with someone else. Currently there are more than 400 seniors, at or below the federal poverty line, awaiting nutrition support through Meals on Wheels in Chatham County alone!
