A note from the Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run, Walk and Ride
As we navigate this unprecedented time, together with our race partner Run Calgary, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run, Walk and Ride on Sunday, May 10. Like many of you, we are very disappointed, however, feel strongly that it is the responsible thing to do for the safety and wellbeing of our community.
For over four decades the Mother’s Day Run, Walk and Ride has brought together the Calgary community in the spirit of movement to support two amazing charities, the Calgary Health Trust NICU and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. We look forward to finding safe and healthy ways for us to move together in the future.
For those of you already registered, Sport Chek will be refunding your race fees. Please watch for an email from Race Roster regarding your reimbursement.
Please stay safe and healthy.
