THAYER -- Area residents who would like to participate in the Sept. 20 Fun and Friends Miles for Meals Walk-A-Thon may pick up a pledge form at the senior center located on Chestnut Street in Thayer.
The walk this year has been moved from Bobcat football field to First Baptist Church Christian Activity Center at 420 Chestnut Street in Thayer. All proceeds from the walk will go toward the meal program at the senior center.
Pledges may be made per mile or contributions of choice may be made. It costs $3 to provide one meal at the center, and center director Sheila Smith asks contributors to take this into account when making their pledges.
The first 35 walkers to bring in $25 in sponsorship the day of the walk will receive a free T-shirt.
Special prizes will be awarded to the most money turned in the day of the walk and also to the youngest and oldest walker.
The walk is sponsored by the Southwest Missouri Office on Aging, Fun and Friends and the Bank of Thayer.
