Run Like a Mother’s Mission:
Run Like A Mother isn't just a Race, it’s our way of life.
We are every woman, from every walk or run of life, gathering together (or virtually) to encourage a healthy lifestyle through moving. On Mother’s Day, we celebrate who we are and what we do.
Whether you are a mother or not, we understand the importance of modeling healthy behaviors for our future generations, and the caring of our own bodies and minds that make us stronger every day.The 2022 Run Like a Mother race supports the Ridgefield Library’s
Noreen L. Papa “Mothers: Live Your Life” Fund.
Contributions to the Fund will support library programs and collections dedicated to women's health and wellness, specifically to educate mothers to take care of themselves so they can take care of others. You may make a donation during registration, or click the "donate" button above.
