The Rotary Club of Fort St. John is challenging local families to get outdoors this May to run, walk, and scavenge through clues in honour of their moms and to support the Women’s Resource Society.
The 2021 Rotary Mother’s Day Run takes place May 2 to 15, and registration is now open for participants to take part in a safe and friendly 5K and 10K race.
Rotarians will also host a drive-thru fundraiser and city-wide family photo scavenger hunt on Sunday, May 9 starting at Surerus Park at 11 a.m.
There will be 30 locations around the city to visit and photograph to be entered into a draw for prizes. Families will need to bring a donation for the Women’s Resource Society anytime between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to receive the scavenger hunt list.
Rotarians have raised more than $70,000 for the Women's Resource Society since 2012 with the help of Fort St. John families. Last year's Mother’s Day event raised $5,500 as well as food and household supplies for the Society's Outreach Store.
“We are hoping our second year providing socially distanced drop off donations will be even more successful than what we managed to pull together for last year. And what better way to celebrate mom than to spend some time walking, running, or scavenging the town with her!” said Rotarian and Event Chair Carina Wallis. “We all need a little extra enjoyment right now and that’s what the Rotary Club is hoping to help provide this Mother’s Day.”
Registration for the 2021 Mother’s Day Run is $25, and participants can choose to do their 5K or 10K run anytime until May 15.
Go to raceroster.com/events/2021/47152/rotary-mothers-day-run to register your family today! All participants will receive a medal.
