Get ready to lace up your runners.

The 21st annual Run for Mom is Saturday, May 11, hosted by the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation and Garrison Running Company.

Run for Mom is a family-friendly 5k run or walk event for all abilities, kicking off this year near the Vedder Road trailhead of the Rotary Trail, by the dog park and playground.

“This year’s route will be a simple yet scenic loop along the Rotary Trail,” said Liz Harris, executive director Fraser Valley Health Care.

The funds raised will directly benefit the Maternity department of Chilliwack General Hospital.

“Chilliwack is a very generous community and has supported Run for Mom for over two decades,” said Harris. “We have a goal to raise $5,000 this year.”

Participants can register at www.fvhcf.ca/runformom and collect pledges. For more details call 1-877-661-0314.
