PRLog - Apr. 19, 2012 - GLEN ELLYN, Ill. -- Run Like A Mother, a women’s only 5k race held on Mother’s Day annually, will benefit Bridge Communities, a DuPage County organization that helps homeless families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency, permanent housing and financial stability.  A portion of all revenues from the Chicagoland Run Like A Mother race will go directly to Bridge Communities.

The run will be held Sunday, May 13 at 8:30 a.m. in downtown Hinsdale.  Registration is currently open; women can register at http://runlikeamotherchicago.eventbrite.com.  More information about the race can be found at www.runlikeamotherrace.com.  Registration costs $40 per person, and a portion of every registration goes directly to Bridge Communities.  A kids’ one-mile run is also an option at $15 per child.  Those interested in donating but who are unable to participate in the race can also make donations at http://runlikeamotherchicago.eventbrite.com.

"Run Like A Mother sought out Bridge Communities to partner with for many reasons, first of which is that we share a common mission – to transform lives,” explains Maggie Barney, Director of Operations for Run Like A Mother.  “The truly life-changing transformation Bridge offers its families paves the road to embracing and learning about the benefits of living a healthy, well-balanced life.  Run Like A Mother has seen first-hand the positive effects starting a running program have.  Our inspiration & motivation comes from the mental and physical transformation that often takes place in first-time athletes.”

Barney adds, “We hope to share the message of Bridge Communities to DuPage County and in turn, introduce our love of running to the Bridge community.  Our hope is that together we can make a positive and lasting impact on those who rely and benefit so much from the services Bridge provides."

Event coordinators have also provided three “scholarships” for Bridge client moms to participate in the race free of charge.

“I’m so excited about this!” exclaims Bridge mom Sarah about the opportunity to race in Run Like A Mother.  “Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do this.  It really means a lot to me.”
