(From a press release)
This annual event supports Senior Concerns’ Meals On Wheels Program, which helps ensure that homebound seniors do not go without food. Volunteers deliver two nutritious, freshly-prepared meals 364 days a year. In 2014, volunteers delivered close to 35,000 meals on Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park. Funds raised from the Love Run help enable Senior Concerns to provide Meals On Wheels scholarships to those who cannot afford the program and ensures nobody is ever turned away.
As in years past, more than 1,500 participants from the local community, as well as outside the state, are expected to participate in the 5K and the 10K events. In addition, there is also a 1-mile walk/run.
This year’s finish line expo is also expected to attract a large and diverse group of vendors who will be handing out samples and sharing information with a wellness-centered theme.
