Supporting Our Seniors
Our cause for 2017 is to use our competitive milestones to help support our seniors. Senior population is among the fastest growing population segments in the U.S., bringing with it a growth in the number of our seniors who are living in solitude and hunger. Approximately one in three seniors are at risk of being socially isolated, disconnected from their communities, from their social networks, and are at risk of premature or unnecessary institutionalization in hospitals or long-term care facilities.
Our hope this year is to bring together competitors who can channel their compassion and kindness towards helping our elderly who remain neglected and lonely. The devastation caused by hurricane Harvey in Houston has put our seniors in the area at greater risks of hunger, loneliness, and deprivation. We will donate all the funds we raise this year to help our elderly in Houston through our charity pick Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston. Meals on Wheels provides home-delivered weekend meals and a week’s worth of breakfast to over 1,100 disabled adults and seniors in the area. This nutritional support helps these seniors stay independent and in their own homes.
We hope you join us and use the gift of our health, good fortune and blessings to lend a hand to our most frail and vulnerable sections of society. A small amount of your generous donation can go a long way – even a single meal and a friendly visit can brighten up someone’s day and give them hope for a better life.
