This Mother’s Day may be a bit different for most of us, but we are going to make the most of it. We are combining something healthy with a salute to Mother’s with a little charity thrown in.

You can join us by completing a 5K anytime and anywhere (safe) on Mother’s Day weekend! Patrick and I will be running/walking around our town-home complex 5 times to complete this challenge. Feel free to pick the route and time that suits you!

We are also going to contribute to a fundraiser for Charly’s Bakery in Cape Town, South Africa. It was started by the parents of one of my childhood friends. The bakery became famous after it was featured on the international TV series, Charly’s Cake Angels. Unfortunately, they are now struggling with the extended “stay at home” orders in South Africa. If you are able, contribute what you would have spent on race entry to this fundraiser and watch the video to find out more about Charly’s Bakery!

I feel so fortunate that I want to share my good fortune and celebrate my mom, Elana, by creating this Mother’s Day 5K fundraiser to benefit 3 other incredible mothers – Jacqui, Alex, and Dani.
