Annual mom’s run goes virtual

The Mom’s Run is normally on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. This year it can’t happen in the traditional way. But that’s okay, because you can still do it as a virtual 5k!

Spend this upcoming Mother’s Day weekend walking or running a 3.1 mile route near your home. Participants will even receive a running bib template they can print at home to make the race feel more official. You’re also encouraged to take photos and share on social media with the hashtag #virtualmomsrun

The annual Moms’ Run is Postpartum Support Charleston’s largest fundraiser. So holding the event to a virtual run allows the organization to raise much-needed funds to support local moms through peer groups, education and connection to critical resources such as counseling and medical assistance. Also, all proceeds benefit Postpartum Support Charleston’s work helping moms in the Charleston area who are struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety.

You can sign up for the race and even purchase a shirt here! Registration is $20 per person and you can purchase official T-shirts as well.
