What is Send Me Waffles?
We are an eCommerce business sending high quality Belgian Liege Waffles across the U.S. They make great gifts or treats for yourself! 

Why is a waffle business hosting a Virtual 5K?
The idea of our business actually planted its seed after a half marathon race we ran in October 2014. The race ended in a food truck rodeo. One of the food trucks sold Belgian Liege Waffles. We had never heard of this type of waffle before but instantly fell in LOVE with the unique taste. When we got home, we worked hard to recreate the waffles. We were smitten and we wanted as many people as possible to have access to these waffles. Naturally, when we were trying to find a way to connect with people during COVID-19 and bring smiles to their faces, we thought of going back to our roots and hosting a race. 

What is a Belgian Liege Waffle?
What makes it different from a normal boring waffle?

Belgian Liege Waffles are yeast waffles instead of batter waffles. They go through multiple rising processes. Their consistency has been described by our customers as a cross between a donut and a soft pretzel. The signature of Belgian Liege Waffles are the pearl sugar bits in each waffle. Our waffles are made using many high quality local to us ingredients! Once you taste a Belgian Liege Waffle, you will understand the WAFFLOVE!

What is the best way to eat a waffle? 
You can enjoy our waffles right out of their package but we recommend heating them in the toaster oven or regular oven. Eat as is or use as a canvas for all your waffle creations!

Why did you choose Parkinson's Foundation as the beneficiary for this race?
We have a personal connection to this foundation as my Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's over 15 years ago. Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the dopamine producing neurons in your brain. The cause is unknown and there is not a cure. Parkinson's manifests itself in people in different ways, but can include movement/motor related symptoms (ex: gait and balance issues and tremors) and non-motor related symptoms (ex: sleep disorders and loss of sense of smell). This disease is hard on the person who has it as well as the caregivers, family members and friends. The Parkinson's Foundation raises money to help spread awareness of the disease, advocate for people with it, and help to research treatments and cures. You can learn more about their work here. https://www.parkinson.org/
