Sign Up for the 9th Annual Moms' 5K Run and Family Fun Day on Daniel Island

April 26, 2012

Join us on Daniel Island this Mother’s Day weekend on Saturday, May 12 for the 9th Annual Moms’ 5K Run, benefitting the Ruth Rhoden Craven Foundation for Postpartum Depression Awareness. This is the largest fundraiser for this foundation, with proceeds benefiting education, support and healing for women in the Lowcountry suffering from postpartum depression.

“This event is for all of the mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, girlfriends and husbands out there who have felt the sting of this illness. For the rest of the population, the Moms’ Run is a perfect opportunity to enjoy some family-friendly fun while supporting a very worthy cause,” says island resident Dr. Risa Mason, the Foundation’s executive director.

The event’s Family Fun Day takes place on May 12 from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm at Blackbaud Stadium. Complimentary food and beverages for race participants, music and games will provide hours of entertainment for the entire family. A $10 donation is appreciated from those not running in the race who wish to be part of Family Fun Day.

Packet Pickup and Race Day Registration starts at 6:30 am on Saturday, May 12. Registration will close at 7:45 am. The run kicks off promptly at 8:00 am from Blackbaud Stadium, and will be followed by the awards ceremony at 9:00 am. The course proceeds along Daniel Island Drive through Etiwan Park, and the finish line is located just outside Blackbaud Stadium.

On Friday, May 11 stop by TrySports in Mt. Pleasant from 4-8 pm for early packet pick up, and hear guest runner Holly Ortlund speak from 6-7 pm about Energy Gel Basics.
