Dear Love Run Family,
It has become clear that we will not be able to hold the 2020 Love Run at the end of October and we are heartbroken knowing that we won’t be together to cheer each other on in person. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes and are excited to announce our new Virtual Love Run during the entire month of LOVE, February, 2021!
OUR SENIORS NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER! Together we must make the commitment to the seniors of our community that we will not forget them, that they are not alone, that we CARE about them, body, mind & spirit! This is why we simply CANNOT cancel the Love Run! We MUST push the date out & make it virtual. We will be together again, but for now, please join us in our virtual 2021 Love Run and help us to continue to feed the most vulnerable of our community!
Run or walk a half marathon, 10K, 5K or One Mile race from wherever you are, any time during the month of February, you will then be able to log your time and distance on-line to see how you stack up to the other Love Runners.
1/2 Marathon, 10K, 5K and 1 Mile Registration Includes:

Your support is need now more than ever!
COVID-19 imposed a sudden and imminent risk to older Americans—and the response from all across this country was unprecedented. Ordinary people stood up, spoke up and gave generously so that Meals On Wheels could provide a lifeline for millions of isolated, frightened seniors whose futures still remain terribly uncertain. We need to keep the momentum of generosity going.
Locally, because of the threat of COVID-19, seniors remain at home and are more reliant on meals coming to them. Since mid-March, Senior Concerns has stepped up its home delivered meal program to meet this need, and at the same time, offer restaurant quality meals, and vital social connections.
We have grown from delivering 800 meals a week to now delivering more than 5,000. That’s 130,000 meals since March!
To further support homebound seniors, we are also delivering free nonperishable household essentials from our new Pantry. Things like shelf stable food, hard to find cleaning products, paper goods and personal care items. And, providing social connections from our 300 strong team of volunteers who deliver meals seven days a week.
Every race registration, as well as every dollar you fundraise, goes directly to delivering meals and essential groceries to homebound seniors.
Want to do something good for the community? Lace up your running shoes and join our virtual race!
Again, from all of us at the Love Run, we THANK YOU from the bottom of our Loverunner hearts for your continued support. YOU are the reason that the Love Run has grown into the fundraising event that it has become. We are truly humbled by your generosity and we promise that we will work really hard to make this the best Love Run ever!
Thank you from Senior Concerns and the Love Run Team
