The 2023 Rotary Mother's Day Run returns to Surerus Park on Sunday, May 14th, 2023, and includes a 10km, 5km and 2.5km race. This year's event will be timed, and prizes will be awarded to the best times. Each registrant will receive a swag bag with items from local sponsors, and the first 350 mothers to cross the finish line will receive a Mother's Day flower.
Rotary chefs will be flipping pancakes for all race participants, and those who have not registered to race can bring a non-perishable item or donation and join in for a hot breakfast while cheering on the racers. A free-entry, all-ages activity and obstacle course will be available for families to enjoy before, after, or during the race.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Fort St. John Women's Resource Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing valuable services and promoting the betterment of all women's lives in Fort St. John and the North Peace. Since 2012, the Rotary Mother's Day Run has raised over $100,000 to help families most in need in the community.
