On Saturday, May 3rd the NAMC kicked off our 5th annual Miles for Mothers 5k, Walk and Kids Fun Run fundraiser on the new Long Beach Boardwalk. The event took place on a beautiful morning with a record of over 150 race registrants. It was the perfect day to honor mothers… just take a look!
Those visiting the boardwalk were greeted by professional soccer club players from the NY Cosmos. Additionally, Sportset of Rockville Center set up a fun obstacle course for the kids and there was music to pump everyone up provided by DJ Chef.
The boardwalk was lined with business supporters and event sponsors who provided participants a chance to see their services and products.
Dan Guererri (of Geneva) and Ruth Albright (a 50-year old mother of Wyandanch) were cheered on by the crowd as they became the official winners of this year’s men and women’s 5k Run.
And of course, the event was filled with loads to do for kids and families including face painting by Party Couture, a raffle filled with amazing gifts and—one of the highlights of the morning—the Kids’ Fun Run.
What better way to celebrate 100 years of Mother’s Days than by helping raise funds which underwrite a 39 year old program that puts moms first by supporting them wherever their walk through motherhood might take them! We couldn’t have asked for a better day or a better way to honor mothers.
A big thanks goes out to all those who helped in making the event a success by donating time, running, and/or participating as a vendor or volunteer.
