March for Meals 5k

Join in for the 9th annual March for Meals 5k on March 23rd!

The Athens Community Council on Aging along with Meals on Wheels America is excited to announce the 17th annual March for Meals campaign. This campaign gives businesses, organizations, governments, and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to show that Meals on Wheels is more than just a meal by participating in a variety of events being held over the course of the month. For the 9th consecutive year, the Athens Community Council on Aging will be holding the March for Meals 5K to benefit our local Meals on Wheels program.

To register for this event, please visit: https://www.accaging.org/events-fundraisers-2/

Where is the race located?

The race will begin and end at Creature Comforts Brewing Co. located at 271 W. Hancock Ave, Athens, GA 30601.

Can’t make it to the race?

Join in for the virtual race! Run at your house, on a treadmill, in the park, or with a group of friends any time before March 23rd. Virtual racers won’t receive an overall award or be placed in the results, but have the option to receive a bib number and t-shirt in the mail if signed up before March 13th. Please share your virtual race pictures with us on social media with the hashtag #m4mVR2019
