2014 - Mother's Day Tiara 5K

The Women's Fund Tiara 5K has become our family friendly signature event and has ended a Mother's Day breakfast in bed tradition for many moms! In the fall of 2006, a group of local women runners offered to put together a race on Mother's Day and donate the proceeds to The Women's Fund. Our first race took place on May 13, 2007. It attracted over 350 runners and walkers, and the Dream Team hasn't looked back. 30 volunteers + 29 sponsors = A great Mother’s Day and $10,000 for The Women's Fund! Last year's race raised more than $40,000 and attracted more than 250 volunteers, 50 sponsors and 1,100 runners, walkers and fun run participants!
