Why Participate?

Our goal is to encourage health and wellness as well as community fellowship. We understand that families want to be active together and give back to the community, and with the Oy Vey! 5K you can do both!

Proceeds from the event will support our Meals on Wheels program. It is the only Meals on Wheels program in the Houston area to provide kosher and standard American meals to homebound seniors. Individuals who are age 60 years or older, incapacitated or disabled, and who are limited in meal preparation may be eligible to participate in the home-delivered meals program. Recipients are often nutritionally at-risk adults who may be disabled, living alone or low-income earners.

By supporting Meals on Wheels, proceeds from The Oy Vey! 5K bring attention to the importance of aiding these senior adults and will help educate and engage our community around the needs of our homebound seniors. Proceeds will go directly to help alleviate the waiting list.
