Looking to stay fit in 2021 and help one of Osceola County’s most impacting organizations at the same time? The Osceola Council on Aging “Meals on Wheels” program is making that possible with “The KUA Presents March for Meals 5K.”

The annual event will take place on Saturday, March 13, 2021, at the Kissimmee Lakefront Park and will include a 5K run and walk for individuals and/or corporate and family teams, the largest and most spirited team competition, a free Kid’s Run, silent auction, and those who finish will receive a metal. Those who bring non-perishable food items to help us build the food pantry, you will be entered a special prize drawing!

“We have seen such a need in our community due to the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, so our seniors and families in our community need us more than ever for food and services, that is why it is so imperative to have the Meals on Wheels program,” said Wilda Belisle, Senior VP of Meals on Wheels for the Osceola Council on Aging. “Meals on Wheels is much more than a meal a day; it also it gives us an opportunity to check in on our seniors, now more than ever. We need individuals, corporate and family teams to come out and walk and run to help individuals who are counting on us to provide them a hot and/or cold meal. We need to fight hunger today! We need our community’s help!”

The event will begin registration at 7:00 am and the run and walk begins at 8:00 am. The cost is $25 (before March 1) and $30 (March 2 – 12) and $35 at the event.
