SAAA Celebrates Successful Walkathon

SAAA celebrated a successful 14th Annual Generations Walkathon on Saturday, April 24th. Despite the fact that it rained again everyone enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast prepared by Shenandoah Valley Westminster Canterbury and was energized by Tonia Sweeney’s Exercise-a-thon which replaced a soggy and slippery walk through the woods.  Although the event is over, SAAA is still collecting Walkathon Funds.  SAAA is at 97% of last year’s total.  But with some fundraising events planned, we hope to finish in the $40,000 range well above last year’s $36,000.

Frederick County Senior Center has a fundraiser planned for Thursday evening, May 18th at Roy Rogers from 5-8 PM at 1551 S. Pleasant Valley Rd. in Winchester.  In addition to receiving 10% of the sales(You have to say you’re supporting the Shenandoah Area Agency on Aging), the Senior Center and staff will be holding a bake sale so you can purchase a sweet treat as well as your dinner and support the Walkathon.  The Frederick Senior Center team is just $239.50 below the amount they raised last year so they are hoping with the event at Roy Rogers to finish higher than last year.   And, the Winchester Senior Center is planning to repeat their wildly successful Spaghetti Dinner which raised over $4,000 for last year’s Walkathon.

Whenever you have a chance, please say a personal thanks to our wonderful Walkathon Sponsors!
