Women’s Fun Run is ‘re-imagined’ for May 9

Families can register for free and do any activity at home

Red Deer’s Primary Care Network is re-imagining its Women’s Fun Run.

Every year, the fun run is held during the Mother’s Day weekend “to honour the incredible women of our community and inspire families to get out and be more active.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the need for physical distancing, organizers had to “think outside the box for our 2020 event.”

Instead of getting together for a community run, families are asked to make a commitment to get active on May 9, “in whatever capacity… Reach for a fitness goal, try a new activity, or just work up a sweat.”

“We encourage community members to register (at www.womensfunrun.com) to receive offers and inspiration from our community partners, and to be eligible to win some fantastic prizes.”

The network’s fun run supports The Mustard Seed school lunch program.

In 2019, the program provided more than 64,000 lunches to disadvantaged students throughout Red Deer.
