Mar 17, 2017

Mattapoisett — The Women's Fund Tiara Race Team is in full training mode as the members prepare for the 11th Annual Women's Fund Tiara 5K, walk and fun run, to take place on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14.

The race will start and finish at the Oxford Creamery in Mattapoisett. Registration opens at 7 a.m., with the children's fun run starting at 9 a.m. and the 5K starting at 9:30 a.m.

Many friends and families have made Mother's Day morning with the Women's Fund Tiara 5K their annual tradition. A scenic course, festive T-shirts, music and kids activities always draw a crowd. Through the efforts of these runners and walkers and many generous sponsors, the Women's Fund Tiara 5K has become the largest fundraising activity of the Women's Fund, whose mission is to “advance the educational attainment and economic security of women and girls in Southeastern Massachusetts.”

Last year's event attracted more than 1,000 participants and raised more than $56,000. Join the team now and register at www.womensfundtiara5k.com. Registration is $20 for the 5K and $5 for the fun run. Registration costs will increase to $30 on May 1 for 5K runners, but the fun run will remain $5.

Volunteers are also needed. Anyone interested should email tiara5kvolunteer@gmail.com.

Revenue from the Tiara 5K will support all Women's Fund activities.
