The 19th annual Miles for
Meals Walk will begin at 10 a.m. on May 4 at Heritage Parks’ Jason
T. Harper Event Center. Registration starts at 9 a.m. A picnic lunch
provided by Southerland’s Food Service will start upon completion of
the walk. Water is also provided throughout the walk. Walkers
receive a T-shirt and meal ticket with a $25 donation. Those who
donate $75 also get a designer cap and a Miles for Meals Walk pin.
Walkers making donations
will be entered to win various door prizes after the walk is
over. A DJ will be onsite providing the entertainment, along
with a clown for the children. The event is family-friendly, and
everyone is encouraged to join in on the fun.
This year’s Mile for Meals
Walk is dedicated to R.W. Coley, former mayor of Hampton and
dedicated volunteer to the Meals on Wheels program. Coley passed
away last October, but his memory lives on in the minds of all the
Henry County residents he faithfully served. For the 2013 edition,
“Lighting the Path” will be the official theme for the walk and
T-shirt design, featuring a lighthouse to honor Coley.
The Jason T. Harper Event Center in Heritage
