Senior Concerns’ 25th Annual Ladin Subaru Love Run, held on June 3, was our best yet – drawing record crowds and raising more than ever before for our Meals On Wheels Program! The event net close to $110,000 which will be utilized to help support Senior Concerns’ Meals On Wheels Program serving Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park, and provide scholarships for low income seniors in need.
What started out as the “Senior Stroll” in 1991 has now grown into the Ladin Subaru Love Run, one of the premier races in the Conejo Valley, and the second largest fundraiser for Senior Concerns. With the tremendous help from the Tuesday Tribe Team, the event raised more than $25,000 in donations alone! There were more than 2,000 runners and walkers participating in the Los Robles Hospital Half Marathon, the PricewaterhouseCoopers 10K, the Tuesday Tribe 5K and the California American Water One Mile.
Senior Concerns offers a huge thanks, as well, to Ladin Subaru, who is in their third year as Title Sponsor, and all the sponsors and vendors who helped make the event and the Finish Line Festival, one of the best yet.
“Since the start of the Love Run 25 years ago, over 20,000 runners and walkers have participated,” said Andrea Gallagher, CSA, President of Senior Concerns. “With the support of our community, we have raised over $1.25 million for Senior Concerns’ Meals On Wheels Program and have delivered nearly 750,000 meals to homebound seniors since 1975. We are truly proud of the impact the Love Run is having on the lives of seniors in the Conejo Valley.”
