ABOUT THE EVENT
The Council on Aging will present Lake County’s 17th edition of March for Meals on the Saturday of St. Patrick’s Day weekend this year, March 16, 2024, from 8 am to 10 am at the Great Lakes Mall in Mentor. March for Meals raises awareness and funds for the Council on Aging’s nutrition programs for Lake County seniors and is part of a national campaign for Meals on Wheels America.
Throughout the entire month of March, you can purchase tickets for several, valuable raffle baskets that will be drawn on March 31st. And on the day of our event, March 16th, we will have a number of additional baskets that will be given away at the mall!
This Lake County event will be one of hundreds of local programs across the country that reaches out to their communities to build the support for Meals on Wheels. The Council on Aging needs the community to take part in the fundraiser to help support an ever-growing number of seniors reaching out for nutritional support. Home delivered meal services not only provide a nutritious meal, but also a friendly visit and safety check by one of the agency’s dedicated meal delivery volunteers.
The indoor event will begin with registration at 8:00 a.m., followed by the walk kickoff at about 8:45 a.m. The walk route is a one-mile indoor loop, but walkers can walk as far as they are able during the event. In addition to camaraderie and walking for a great cause, participants will enjoy morning coffee, a goodie bag, an opportunity to try for additional raffle baskets and fun musical entertainment by DJ Jesse Webb!

Participants can join individually or as part of a walk team. In addition to camaraderie and walking for a great cause, participants will receive morning refreshments – fresh fruit, juice and breakfast bar, a goodie bag, and musical entertainment.
