Run for Mom held its 18th annual event this past Sunday, May 9. The organization had another successful year with more than $23,000 donated at the event. When this is added to the sponsorship dollars, more than $46,000 has been raised this past year.

Run for Mom has raised more than $1.1 million to support breast health for Yukoners. All money raised stays in the Yukon. In the past funds raised have helped purchase a digital mammography unit at the Whitehorse General Hospital, supported breast health publications and the Paddlers Abreast canoe team.

It is estimated 1,200 individuals turned out for the 4.2 km walk/run around the Millennium Trail. Many multi-generational families turned out, with grandparents, parents and grandchildren completing the event together. Entertainment was provided by the Fiddleheads.

Run for Mom would like to thank the generous sponsors and volunteers and all Yukoners that turned out for the event. A special thank you goes out to Atlin, B.C., Carmacks and Haines Junction for hosting events in their communities. Elijah Smith Elementary and Christ the King Elementary schools also hosted events last week.
