Sponsorship Opportunities-

While we can all agree the past year and a half  has been very challenging, it has been particularly difficult for older adults and their caregivers, many who are struggling, often alone, to stay healthy, safe, fed, and connected.  Aging Ahead has also been challenged to respond to an increase in requests for our services, including Meals on Wheels.  

Last year’s event was also held virtually and we had nearly 150 participants and raised enough funds to provide over 1200 Meals on Wheels!  Please consider becoming a sponsor today! Your sponsorship can help us provide even more meals this year to individuals in St Louis, St Charles, Jefferson and Franklin counties.  

We invite you to become a 5K sponsor! There are four levels of sponsorships being offered with a wide range of benefits. Your reply by Sept 1st is appreciated to help ensure your name is prominently noted on promotional materials and online sites.
