The YWCA of Duluth Mother's Day 5k Run is coming up this Saturday, beginning at 8am from Bayfront Festival Park !  There is also a 2-mile walk and a youth run.  Last year over 1,000 people took part in the events, with proceeds helping the YWCA's health and wellness program.  The 5k is chip timed, and is for women only, while the walk and youth run is open to all.   Last years 5k winner was Kathleen Monaghan, who finished in 19:26.

The events are also a tribute to women who have be impacted by cancer, as well as their families.  While online registration is closed, I know all the participants would love to see the streets lined with members of our community giving them all the support and encouragement we can muster.  Let's all get out Saturday morning for this fantastic annual tradition.
