March for Meals

July 12-August 23, 2020 | Virtual Event

Join Meals on Wheels San Diego County for its annual March for Meals “Commit to Getting Fit” challenge, presented by Barona Band of Mission Indians, to help support San Diego’s homebound and isolated senior population. Although the event is free this year, fundraising is encouraged and donations are welcome as proceeds will help provide nutritious meals and a daily wellness checks for this most vulnerable and fragile population.

Each registrant will be given the opportunity to fundraise and earn prizes as they “March for Meals” on their own and share their progress via social media. The six-week event encourages participants to walk in their neighborhoods and share their progress on their fundraising page and social media using the hashtag #MOWSD2020Walk.

“We are excited to try a virtual event this year. So many supporters have already been raising money and earning prizes and we hope more will join us. We’ve all recently had to experience loneliness and food scarcity during this crisis and believe more San Diegans will find it in their hearts to participate,” says Amie Brown, Director of Development for Meals on Wheels San Diego County. “I am personally committing to walk a minimum of four miles per day for the entirety of the event and will be asking friends to support my progress.”

The final day of the event will be August 23 and will entail a Facebook Live video at 12pm with a message from Meals on Wheels’ leadership, as well as awards for top fundraisers, walkers, and influencers. Prizes include gift certificates, gift baskets, and more. meals-on-wheels.org/MarchForMeals5k
