Pajaro Valley Shelter Services presents the 34th Annual Mother’s Day Run/Walk for Shelter on Sunday, May 13th, 2018, at Ramsay Park in Watsonville. The Run/Walk will include a 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk and a 1K Kids’ Fun Run. Goodies include t-shirts, roses for mothers, medals for winners, continental breakfast, and a live DJ. This year,families with strollers will be allowed in the event. For 33 years, the community of Watsonville has supported our run to ensure the continuation of services for homeless families. The race is PVSS’ biggest fundraising event. The first one was held in 1984 and raised $8,000 with a small crowd in attendance. In 2018, we expect over 1,000 people to help raise $75,000!
This well-loved event can be enjoyed by attendees of all ages and skill levels, from the competitive runners to the weekend joggers, to families who want to walk together. Starting and ending in Ramsay Park, the race route is a beautiful trek around Watsonville’s slough trails. Start your Mother’s Day off by joining the community in supporting the end of homelessness for mothers, their children, and families in South County. The first race starts at 7:45 am and the entire event ends at 10:00 am just in time to enjoy the rest of Mother’s Day.
