The Issaquah Schools Foundation had already planned on hosting a Mother’s Day Dash to benefit the foundation before the Boston bombings occurred. The foundation decided that the Mother’s Day Dash would be the perfect opportunity to raise money in honor of the victims of the Boston bombings by donating $1 for every participant that enters the race and donate it to the One Fund.
Christine Kipp of Ewing and Clark is a supporter of the foundation and was so impressed by what they are doing that she decided to match each donation dollar for dollar. She will donate $1 for every runner and walker that participates to the One Fund and foundation.
They are expecting there to be between 1,000 and 1,500 participants. The run starts at 9:00am on Saturday, May 11th on 12th Ave by the Issaquah Sports Authority. Entry fee is $25 for adults and children over 11 years old and $8 for children 10 years old and younger. For more information on the event please visit http://issaquahmothersdaydash.eventbrite.com/#.
