Volunteers are needed for the 13th annual Mother’s Day Mile on Sunday, May 13, from 1-3 p.m. This one-mile race is a fundraiser for the domestic and sexual violence programs of the Advocate Safehouse Project of Garfield County.

Volunteers are needed in the following areas: race course marshals, setup, clean-up, registration, refreshment service, finish line, green team, massage, kids activities, the silent auction and more.

To join the Mother’s Day Mile volunteer team and receive a race T-shirt, contact Nancy Reinisch at nrein@rof.net or Julie Olson at 945-2632.

Visit advocatesafehouse.org for more information.

Runners and walkers: Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 2, the date of the second annual Mountain to Valley 10-Miler and F.A.S.T. 4-Miler.

The race will be staged on a fast course, which starts just above the intersection of Dry Park Road and Thompson Creek Road, at the SourceGas parking lot. The first six miles are on a rolling dirt road with an overall descent. The final four miles are a fast downhill on that road, which will take you back to the Sopris soccer fields in Glenwood Springs. Four-mile racers follow the last four miles of the 10-mile course.

Last year, the first finisher crossed the line in 51 minutes, 52 seconds – for the 10-miler. The day features a scenic downhill course, awards, a band, beer and a raffle. There will also be a half-mile fun run for kids and family.

If running is not your thing, volunteers are needed. Contact Candy Granger for more info at cdgranger@msn.com.

The inspiration behind this race is Sam, a local boy who has a rare neurogenetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. All race proceeds will be donated to organizations that are making a difference in Sam’s life, and in the lives of others like him. Those organizations are Mountain Valley Developmental Services (a local nonprofit) and the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).
