SCI Miles for Meals 5k Run/Walk Registration is Open

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Friday, February 15th, 2019

Local non-profit, Senior Citizens, Inc. (SCI), is hosting its 9th annual Miles for Meals 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, March 23 at 9 am. The event, which will benefit SCI’s Meals On Wheels (MOW) program, will be a run/walk that will start at Senior Citizens, Inc. on Bull Street, and loop through the picturesque Washington Avenue before ending at SCI.

Miles for Meals is a fun 5K run/walk perfect for all ages. Participants are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends, kids in strollers, and dress as their favorite foods.  Race proceeds will help fight senior hunger by supporting SCI’s MOW program which currently delivers more than 5,500 hot, healthy meals and friendly smiles each week to homebound seniors throughout Chatham, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham counties.

Although it takes just $6 a day to provide a freshly-prepared, nutritious meal and wellness-check to a homebound senior, more than 400 seniors await nutritional support in Chatham County alone! Georgia ranks sixth among Meals on Wheels America's “Top Ten Hunger States,” with nearly one in six seniors in Georgia being at risk of hunger.
