Meals on Wheels of Erath County will host a fun run beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 12, at Stephenville City Park.

Sponsorships are available and include some great amenities. 

Registration is $25 per runner for the 5k and $20 for the 1-mile Fun Run. Entries must be received by May 1 to guarantee a T-shirt.

Early packet pickup will be May 11 from 12-4 p.m. at the Meals on Wheels office. 

Meals on Wheels’ ability to keep up with the demand for meal and pet food services is dependent on the success of this fundraiser. Last year, Meals on Wheels provided more than 43,000 hot meals and local funds provided approximately 20% of those meals. Each contribution will help insure that we never have to place a single elderly client on a waiting list. 

To give an idea of what each sponsorship can do for local seniors, a Bronze Sponsorship helps deliver 21 meals; a Silver Sponsorship helps deliver 35 meals; and a Gold Sponsorship helps deliver 71 meals. 

To make a pledge, call 254-965-3510or email erathmow@embarqmail.com.
