10th Annual Kelly’s Angels Mother-Lovin' 5K Run/Walk
Sunday, May 8, 2022

Two Ways to Participate

  1. VIRTUAL PARTICIPATION: From wherever you are anytime throughout Mother’s Day weekend. Online registration for participants is open through the end of day on Sunday, May 8.
  2. IN-PERSON 5K Run/Walk: Orenda Pavilion, Saratoga Spa State Park. Registration for in-person participation is no longer available online, but you can register in-person on May 7 (10am-2pm) and May 8 (7:30am-8:30am) at the Orenda Pavilion in the Saratoga Spa State Park (see course map below for location). RACE SHIRTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR RACE-DAY REGISTRANTS.

The Kelly’s Angels Mother-Lovin’ 5K Run/Walk will be back in person this year on Mother’s Day morning, May 8th at the Saratoga Spa State Park.

Now in its 10th year, the Mother-Lovin’ 5K has become the signature annual fundraiser for Kelly’s Angels. All proceeds directly support our mission to help children who’ve lost a parent or sibling to cancer or other illness or who, themselves, are battling a life-threatening condition. Your support brings joy to the lives of people who’ve endured, or are going through, heartbreaking times.

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate our 10th annual event, together!
