This event is for everyone, from the serious runner to a family looking to be more active together or someone getting a jump start on those fitness goals,” organizers of the event said.
Meals on Wheels continues to serve the community by delivering hot lunchtime meals to over 300 seniors across Grand Cayman each weekday.
Jennifer West, Meals on Wheels General Manager, states, “As the global crisis rises, so does the demand for our services, we have more and more seniors being referred each day, and funds are needed to ensure that we are able to sustain our services to our vulnerable seniors.”
