The Phoenician Golf Club to host “Run Fore Mom” 5K fun run/walk on Mother’s Day

The Phoenician Golf Club is hosting Run Fore Mom, a 5K fun run/walk to be held on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 11, 2014. Presented by TroonFIT, The Phoenician and StartLine Racing, the program will offer walkers and runners a truly unique experience, with the event taking place on the golf course itself. A portion of the proceeds from Run Fore Mom will benefit Happily Ever After League (HEAL), which provides support to moms during cancer treatment. HEAL assists Arizona mothers recovering from any type of cancer with at least one dependent child living at home.

Registration for the 5K run/walk is just $40 for mom and one child. Single adult registration is $30 and one child registration is $20. Run Fore Mom also features a parent/child package that includes registration for two adults and one child for just $65. All participants will receive a custom race tech shirt and custom finisher’s medal.

“We are excited about this great event and the opportunity to ‘celebrate mom’ in TroonFIT-fashion with a fun run/walk along the cart paths of our stunning course, affording participants great views of Camelback Mountain and the Valley of the Sun,” said Ryan McKay, Director of Golf at The Phoenician.

The program will begin promptly at 7:00 a.m., with race-day check-in and race-day registration opening at 6:00 a.m. The event will also include an arts and crafts area for kids where they can create something for mom on her special day.
