The 4th Annual Moving Heels for Meals on Wheels 5K Road Race/Walk will be held Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 9 a.m. at Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston, MA.
It is time to spring into action! Gather friends, family, and co-workers to enjoy this family fun 5K that will include free kid friendly activities hosted by Old Colony YMCA Camp Clark all while raising funds for a good cause. Whether you participate as part of a team or as an individual runner/walker, you’ll help raise funds to support Old Colony Elder Services’ (OCES) vital Nutrition program.
OCES would like to thank all race sponsors, in particular their Platinum Heel sponsors MountainOne, Geriatric Home Healthcare and their Golden Heel sponsor Anodyne. OCES delivers 1,600 nutritious meals a day to older adults and individuals with disabilities living within 23 communities in greater Plymouth County. All meals are planned by a nutritionist, and with the help of hundreds of volunteers, are delivered either to individual homes or to Community Dining Sites, which provide older adults opportunities for social interaction.
The cost of one registration for the 5K Road Race/Walk helps cover the cost of one individual receiving a daily meal for almost a week.
“Last year, we raised $11,000 for our Nutrition program with the Moving Heels for Meals on Wheels 5K, and our goal is to exceed that amount this year,” said Nicole Long, CEO. “Team OCES is looking forward to a great race!”
