Welcome to the 2015 Mother's Day Mile
Check out our video here
The 16th Annual Mother's Day Mile will be held on Sunday, May 10, 2015 with opening ceremonies beginning at 1 pm.
The one mile race 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 completers who complete the one mile course just for fun. The Mother's Day Mile is as much a celebration as it is a race. A celebration of Moms, fitness, and community. Of course, men, women, and families invited.
This is a one mile, yes just one mile, out and back race course that begins and ends at Glenwood Medical Associates, 1830 Blake Avenue, Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

FROM LOCAL TO GLOBAL:
We are proud of our continuing Sisterhood Exchange Program with the women of Mfangano Island and Eldoret, Kenya. Our partnership connects the Mother's Day Mile community with the HIV + women of Western Kenya. Whether it's domestic or sexual violence or the stigma of HIV/Aids women need help to provide for their families through work, empowerment, and self sufficiency. This is a Fair Trade Cooperative that pays a salary to the artisans. If you would like to join our partnership as a Sisterhood Exchange Program sponsor please contact Nancy Reinisch, at
