WE'VE GONE VIRTUAL and NATIONAL!!!
Register today and we will mail out your bib and medal after we receive our shipment. Before Mothers Day.
Hope you and your families are doing well. These are scary, unprecedented times...and we are each doing our best to learn how to navigate through them. We feel a deep responsibility and commitment to everyone who participates in the Mom’s Day Run. And, so while we are disappointed that we can’t all be together at the beach this year, we want to assure all of you that the Mom’s Day Run will be held – we just need to go Virtual...and this gives us the chance to go nationwide. As the run is virtual, we are hoping for participantion from all across the U.S. Invite your friends!
WE LOST OUR VENUE - Events for the City of Ventura have been cancelled through May 4th and events within the park at Ventura State Beach have cancelled through the end of April. *Our Mom's Day Run, runs through both California State Parks and the City of Ventura. We are concerned about the safety and wellbeing of our participants, vendors and families. But we didn't want to just not do anything. And we felt our options were limited. This is our 10th Anniversary and a huge milestone for us. So yes, we had to do something, right?
The Mom's Day Run started after our Mother passed away from complications to VHL. We wanted to honor her, leave her a legacy and keep our promise to find a cure.
Many of you have been with us since the beginning...sharing Mother’s Day with our family. Having Breakfast Burritos, Kona Ice, Peet's Coffee, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, having fun in the Photo Booth and winning amazing prizes at our Famous Raffle. Because of your past support we have been able to donate more than $200,000.00 to the VHL Alliance to fund cancer research and provide patient resources. And our mission to find a cure continues, even as we must all deal with these stressful times.
SO, THIS YEAR LOOKS DIFFERENT - We will miss out on the finish line fun...we won't be all together at the beach on Mothers Day. We won't be dancing to DJ Divine or Emily B...but we'll keep the promise alive, we'll raise money for a great cause, we will still honor our moms, we'll share our photos on the Mom's Day Run facebook page, all while maintaining the proper social distance in groups of 10 or less. Since things are changing day to day, please confirm this before you go out for your run/walk.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN/WALK?
KEEP IN MIND THAT THINGS CAN AND MIGHT CHANGE.
VIRTUAL RUN/WALK - What does that mean? Once you register, we would mail your bib, medal, prepaid tee's. And you would run or walk in your neighborhood, your favorite path or trail or even on your treadmill. You can run with family or friends, or even your pooch, you can run on Friday, Saturday or Sunday or even Wednesday night. You can run/walk virtually anywhere at any time, before May 17th. You might challenge a friend or family member from out of state to run/walk with you will recording it LIVE. Once you've finished, you would post your time, location and photo (optional) of your Run/Walk and this would be posted on our Mom's Day Run Facebook Page. This option would be offered at Pre April 11th pricing. 5k/10k -$30 or Family 4 Pack - $100 ~ And of course, always heed the advice from your local government in response to the developing situation in your area. Keeping you and your community safe should always be the top priority.
OUR GOAL IS TO CONTINUE TO FUNDRAISE
100% of the proceeds will go to the VHL Alliance who funds cancer research and provides patient resources. vhl.org
We have more than thirty gifts to give-away. So, on May 10th, instead of meeting on the beach, let's meet up at Facebook LIVE for the drawing of bib numbers. Just remember, register now so you can be entered in the drawing: we will tear off the bottom portion of your bib before we mail the bib and medal to you. Some of you registered by March 1st (so you will get two chances to win.)
We are so grateful to our local business community. Many of these great folks have supported the mission of the VHL Alliance from the beginning. We appreciate their generosity and as always, we want to share that generosity with you. It's one way we can still say Thank You for your support of the Mom's Day Run and vhl.org
