Lighting A Spark at ETA!

Walk or Run to Support ETA!

Celebrate Older Americans Month by recognizing a special person who ignited a spark in you!


Physical activity is critical to the health of individuals of all ages. This is the perfect time to get active! And, we invite you to register your dog (or other pet) to enjoy the benefits of the weather and physical activity.

From May 1 - 20, 2023, run or walk in honor of, or in memory of, a special older person who sparks love and memories in your heart.  On May 20, 2023, ETA will be holding events at John F. Kennedy High School and Kensington Park Senior Community. Run or walk your last mile surrounded by your community. 

4 Easy Steps to Participate

1 - Sign Up: Register to walk/run, share the name of an older adult who has ignited a spark in you!

2 - Get Light A Spark Gear: Download your bib and receive your t-shirt in the mail. Wear your bib on your shirt every time 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: Throughout May, walk/run from wherever you are, post your pics and join an in-person event on May 19 or 20. Donate to increase your impact even more.
