At Fox Pest Control we know that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. And, 99 percent of the time, they aren’t wearing capes. Most heroes perform everyday acts of excellence that involve little to no fanfare and take place without anyone watching. Just like Meals on Wheels Chicago, when people need help, we’re there. Every single one of our team members in the Fox Pest Control Chicago branch has been a hero to someone, saving their home, restoring peace of mind, or solving a problem.
For nearly four decades, Meals on Wheels Chicago has been a hero to those in the Windy City, serving seniors and individuals with disabilities. And, as of 2022, it is now delivering more than 100,000 meals weekly and providing regular check-ins offering comfort, service, and peace of mind to those they serve.
One of the ways that Meals of Wheels Chicago secures the funding that it needs to continue operating the home meal delivery program is to host fundraising events. This year, the organization is hosting a virtual 5K called “March for Meals 5K”. By hosting a virtual event, the 5K, which can be run or walked, allows participants to complete the event on their own time and in their own neighborhood between March 20th and 26th, 2022.
This year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Meals on Wheels, Fox Pest Control has committed to sponsoring the March for Meals 5K! Why? Because sometimes heroes need help too.
Registration for the 5K is now open. And, best of all, because it’s virtual, individuals from anywhere around the world are welcome to join. Lace up your sneakers and join us in helping Meals on Wheels Chicago!
