This is the 7th Annual Mother’s Day Event in Grove City, Ohio. The Mother’s Day 5K will have a start of 8:00AM on Sunday, May 12, 2019. For 2019, we will continue to evolve our Inclusion Revolution Theme from 2018. We want to fully embrace, invite and attract athletes with disabilities to join activities for the day. For athletes with disabilities, we are going to have a 100 yard Event (Mother’s Day 100) before the 5K. We are awaiting final approval from Team Heart and Sole (decision expected in Jan timeframe) to team up with Team Heart and Sole to provide whatever accommodations are needed for athletes with disabilities desiring to safely participate in our 5K. The itinerary for the Sunday morning looks something like this:
Primrose Children’s Run Start: 07:30AM; Mother’s Day 100 Start: 7:40AM ; Champions 5K Start: 7:58AM; Mother’s Day 5K Start: 8:00AM
The 2018 Mother’s Day Event was our best attendance (and weather:) as we had just over 700 entrants. In 2019, Grove City’s Buddy Ball will be our featured charity. This 5K event proceeds and donations will go toward purchasing stadium lights at The Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium in Grove City, Ohio. By installing stadium lights, more players can be accommodated in our league play. We can also host other teams from outside of Grove City to play on our field.
