Event Description

Please join us in supporting maternal mental health on Sunday, May 12th, 2024 (Mother’s Day!) at McNamara Park in Galena, Ohio, for our Inaugural Mom Day 5k + Kiddo Dash! A gathering for all “mom kind” and those affected by pregnancy struggles (miscarriages, stillbirths, hyperemesis gravidarum, infertility, and beyond) as well as postpartum struggles (anxiety, depression, isolation, and beyond). Family members, caregivers, fur moms, and all humankind will be welcomed! Proceeds raised will be donated to POEM Ohio (Perinatal Outreach and Encouragement for Moms), which offers support, resources, referrals, and a sense of community to help moms and birthing persons in Ohio feel heard, understood, and empowered. You don’t have to be a mom to join us, either. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and community members to come out and enjoy a special morning together. 

Did you know postpartum depression and other mental health conditions are the most common complications of pregnancy and childbirth? More than 30% of new moms & birthing persons experience them, according to POEM. We get to change this, one stride at a time.

Post-Race Celebration of Motherhood 

Stick around after the race for our Celebration of Motherhood Village sponsored by Juniper OBPT where several local moms with small businesses or non-profits will be showcasing what they do for our community. We will have photo opportunities provided by Iron + Ivy as well as mocktails provided by Simple Times Mixers.
