This Valentine’s Day, show your love for an older adult who’s meant a lot to you, with a sign-up for ETA’s 2nd annual Light A Spark Challenge. Early-bird registration is open now with our lowest prices available through the end of February.

The Challenge is a fun, self-paced 15-day run/walk challenge from May 1-15. May is Older Americans Moth, and you’re invited to participate in honor of a member of an older generation who “sparked” a light in you—whether recently or decades ago.  A special grandparent, memorable neighbor, inspiring teacher… anyone! All participants receive a t-shirt and other goodies, as well as a certificate naming your honoree.

And, you’ll feel great knowing that all proceeds go to support Empowering the Ages’ work, so we can keep bringing younger and older generations together to “light a spark” in each other and in the community.

What are you waiting for? Do something good for you and good for the community! Early-bird discounted registration is open now at

And if you live in the DC/Maryland area, save the date for a free family movie night on April 30 to kick off the Light A Spark Challenge!
