Walk or Run to Support Empowering the Ages!

The Challenge is named in memory of Kofi Frempong, a founding Empowering the Ages Board Member, who ignited a spark in every person with whom he came in contact—a role model, an inspiration and a shining light for all of us at ETA.
 
From May 1-15, 2024, join our ETA community by running or walking in honor of, or in memory of, a special older person who lit a spark in your life. 
 
You can participate in Light A Spark from any location! And for those in the Maryland area, you're invited to a walk, fitness activities and community wellness event, on May 4, 10:00AM-12:00PM, at Kennedy High School in Silver Spring.
 
We welcome participants of all ages, as well as dogs to join the fun! Early Bird pricing is $35 until March 15 and regular pricing is $45, starting on March 16.

4 Easy Steps to Participate

1 - Sign Up: Register to walk/run, share the name of a special person who has ignited a spark in you! Teams are encouraged - each team member registers and indicates the team they would like to join (or start) at registration. Virtual badges and shout-outs will occur for teams who hit special goals!

2 - Get Light A Spark Gear: Download your bib and receive your swag in person or in the mail. Wear your swag when you walk/run and log miles as a reminder that every step you take is making a difference in others' lives.

3 - Walk/Run & Donate: From May 1-15, 2024, walk/run from wherever you are, post your pics and if possible, join an in-person event in Silver Spring, Maryland on May 4, 2024. Donate to increase your impact even more.

4 - Feel Incredible: Celebrate the lives changed by your participation. We can’t wait to see how much fun you had making a difference in the lives of children and older adults.
