The Ninth Annual Mother’s Day 5K Tiara Road Race was held in Mattapoisett yesterday. More than 1,000 runners participated in the race as a fundraiser for the Women’s Fund with creative costumes as well as a fun run for the children. This is their biggest fundraiser and the event has grown over the years.
Karen Browning has overseen the volunteer staff for the race for eight years. She recruits high school kids from Old Rochester Regional High School and feels this year was her highest turnout of volunteers to date.
The race starts at Oxford Creamery on Route 6 in Mattapoisett and ends there also.
Many groups of women run together as well as family members. Bold Moves Real Estate was represented by Tracey Lee running were her daughter Maddie. There’s no better way to be spending Mother’s Day than running the race with her daughter.
Twelve-year-old Ryan Quinlan took home First Place in the 8 to 12 Fun Run Title and New Bedford native Mike Grasela won the 5K in 18:02.
The money raised will help provide higher education and economic well-being for women in Southeastern Massachusetts.
