6th annual Meals on Wheels glow run set for this weekend

LIBERTY — Pickens County Meals on Wheels will host its sixth annual glow run 5K this Saturday, Oct. 14.

The race will take place in front of the McKissick Center on S.C. Highway 93 and end at the rear of the PCMOW building on Edgemont Avenue. A glow attire contest will be planned at 7 p.m., with participants encouraged to be creative with their glow attire. The timed race will begin at 7:30 p.m., and walkers are welcome to follow in the rear of the lineup. First, second and third place will be awarded for males and females in three age categories. A post-race snack will be provided along with a “selfie-station” with UV lighting.

PCMOW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making sure that no senior is left isolated or hungry.

The organization’s budget relies on fundraising and donations to help continue to provide meals and a friendly safety check to the county’s homebound seniors.
