The 17th Annual Mother's Day Mile & 5K will be held on Sunday, May 8, 2016 with opening ceremonies beginning at 12:45pm.
This event benefits the domestic and sexual violence programs of Advocate Safehouse Project. This premier community event attracts elite men and women competitors, recreational runners, and a host of community walk and run competitors who complete the one mile course just for fun. The Mother's Day Mile & 5K is as much a celebration as it is a race. A celebration of Moms, fitness, and community. Of course, men, women, and families invited.
