Walkathon to be held

Thursday, September 8, 2005

THAYER -- The Fun and Friends Senior Citizen Center will hold its annual Miles for Meals walkathon Sept. 10.

The walk again this year will be at the Thayer High School gymnasium

All proceeds will go to the meal program at the Fun and Friends Senior Citizen 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 pledges.

She said 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 oldest and youngest walker.

For more information concerning the fund-raising event contact Smith at 417-264-7354 or Phil Wood at 417-264-7217. The Miles for Meals Walkathon is sponsored by the Southwest Missouri Office on Aging, Fun and Friends Senior Citizen Center, the Ozark Coalition and the Bank of Thayer.
