Perfect Weather for Annual Meals On Wheels 5K Race

Older Person’s Commission (OPC) Annual Run/Walk for Meals Raises More Than $32,000

More than 600 people participated in the OPC 5K Run/Walk for Meals this year. The weather was perfect for walking, running, jogging and cheering on the racers.

Over $32,000 was raised for Meals on Wheels, which provides daily meals for homebound seniors seven days a week. Last year OPC prepared, delivered and served a total of 117,959 nutritionally balanced meals to be delivered to seniors’ homes by over 500 volunteers, dining in at OPC and other area senior centers.
