Mother Runner Event’s goal is to support local charities in our community. This year, Take Me Out To The 5k will support the suicide prevention non-profit organization, Start Day One. Start Day One’s mission is to help change people’s perspective from dreaming of one day to starting day one. Start Day One’s unique approach of being proactive through education instead of a reactive one is what sets them apart from other suicide prevention organizations. Take Me Out To The 5k will raise funds to send public speakers to venues such as schools, rehab centers, and military bases to proactively educate on suicide prevention.

Additional Information: Take Me Out to the 5K is a stroller friendly race. The Rookie Run is open to children walking age to 12 years old. In addition to their participation in the Rookie Run, all registered rookies are invited to accompany their registered parent/guardian on their Major League 5k.

For safety reasons, and the structure of our race course, the parking lots will close from 6:45 p.m. until the last runner crosses the finish line. Please keep this in mind to ensure you get to the venue on time. If necessary, notify family members who are attending as spectators. Main roads leading into the stadium will be blocked by local police and NO entry will be allowed until completion of the race.
