FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The rescheduled Mothers Day Rotary Run is a go this Sunday at the Surerus Fields in Fort St. John.

Back on May 6th, event organisers announced that they would postpone the walk, which was previously scheduled for Mother’s Day, May 14th due to the wildfire situation that had escalated at the time, as well as the decrease in regional air quality.

The Rotary Club will be donating $2 from every entry to Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society, as well as the net proceeds from the event. The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing valuable services and promoting the betterment of all women’s lives.

Participants can pick up their run packages at Ernies Sports Experts in the Totem Mall on Saturday between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Registration happens on Sunday morning from 8:30 to 9:30. The 10 kilometre run begins at 10:00 a.m., with the 5 km run fifteen minutes later. The 1 km Kids Dash starts at 11:15 a.m., followed by the Prize Presentations and a Rotary-sponsored pancake breakfast.
