Conover, NC – Senior Nutrition Services is holding its inaugural Superhero Run on May 11th at Conover Park. Proceeds from this event will help support Meals on Wheels and Seniors Morning Out programs. A Fun Run for children starts at 8:30 am and the 5k begins at 9 am, so it will be fun for the entire family. You can walk or run, just come out and have fun supporting a great cause. Each registered participant will receive a voucher for free food to use post-race at our food trucks! Register by April 30th and receive a Superhero Run T-Shirt. Late registration is May 1st through May 7th, but no T-shirt is guaranteed. Even if you cannot be with us on Race Day, support Meals on Wheels and receive a Superhero T-Shirt by registering as a Phantom Runner!
RunTimeRaces, known for well-run and organized races in Catawba County and surrounding areas, is producing this race. To register for the Superhero Run, please visit the RunTimeRaces website at http://runtimeraces.com/.
Senior Nutrition Services provides Meals on Wheels and Seniors Morning Out programs to seniors who are 60 years old or older in Catawba County. The programs serve approximately 500 seniors each operating day. Nearly, 40% of the seniors served are living at or below the poverty level and 47% live alone. Our programs help seniors facing challenges of hunger, isolation and poverty.
Seniors Morning Out and Meals on Wheels are much more than a nutritious meal. These programs are a social connection and a safety check for seniors. Surveyed seniors report that Meals on Wheels helps them remain in their homes and having meals delivered to their homes improves their mood. It only costs $22 to feed a senior for a week and a little over $1,000 to feed a senior for an entire year.
Be a Superhero, register for the Superhero Run, and help support seniors in our community. Your contribution will make a big difference. Together, we are fighting senior huger with every step!
