Walk, Run, Ride to the Moon

In the first 100 days of the Shelter in Place order, Self-Help for the Elderly delivered over 300,000 meals to seniors in the Bay Area so they could stay safe at home in this pandemic. With increased demand, we are incurring significant costs beyond normal operating budget. By joining this virtual fitness fundraiser, you can help us raise critical funds for the organization.

Join us as we Walk, Run, Ride to the Moon, our first virtual fitness event that combines personal fitness, charity, and community. It is vital to encourage hope and to care for our physical and mental health. Autumn Moon Festival falls on October 1, 2020. In Chinese culture, the full moon is the brightest on this night and signifies completeness and family unity.

This virtual fitness fundraiser connects friends and family, with a reason to exercise and keep healthy. Your participation raises critical funds for Self-Help for the Elderly's COVID-19 Emergency Meal Delivery Program and interactive online classes for seniors.
