Miles For Mothers Walk & 5K

CalendarA_041814On May 3, the Jericho-based National Association of Mothers’ Center will host its first certified 5K/One Mile Walk and Kids Fun Run on the brand new Long Beach boardwalk. This event marks the centennial of Mother’s Day and is a way for everyone to honor a mom they love.

What better way to celebrate 100 years of Mothers’ Days than by helping raise funds which underwrite a 39-year-old program that puts moms first by supporting them wherever their walk through motherhood might take them.

Run, walk or consider contributing virtually by making a donation to honor or remember a mother in your life NOW! You can help us encourage positive change and support mothers everywhere.
