FRASER Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) and Garrison Running Co. hosted the 24th annual Run for Mom 5k Run/Walk on Sunday, May 8 with a turnout of over 130 participants.
“A little bit of rain didn’t stop the troops from coming out to support Run For Mom this year,” said Liz Harris, Executive Director of FVHCF. “We had runners, walkers and bikers hit the ground at Vedder River Trail for a great start to Mother’s Day.”
This year’s run raised over $8,200 in support of the Maternity Department at Chilliwack General Hospital.
