The annual Mother’s Day fixture offers something for the entire family. It is brought to you by The Optimist Club of West Lorne Inc and the Municipality of West Elgin. This year, we are raising funds for Optimist Children’s Charities.
This year’s race offers both an in-person and virtual option. For over eight years, runners, walkers and families from all over Elgin County have met in West Lorne to participate in the Mother’s Day Road Race which helps raise funds for youth charities.
The first race was held in September 2014 in partnership with the West Elgin Recreation Committee.
All proceeds from the race support children’s charities. Much of the funding for these programs comes from events hosted by Optimist.
In the seven years since the race started the community has raised over $20,000 the charities.
This event raises funds for three youth charities. Imagine helping your neighbour’s child or even one of your own.
