The 2017 Mother's Day 5K Run/Walk will be held at Kituwah Mound, also known as the Mother Town. Hosted by Cherokee Choices, the event takes place on a course that has a bit of everything: road, farm road, and trails–offering a complete review of the historic site. The course is perfect for seasoned runners, first-timers, and walkers. The run begins at 12 p.m.

Cool shirts, great awards, and a great cause: all proceeds benefit the Cherokee Dialysis Support Group. Registration will be accessible online at or in person from 10:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Prior to May 1, entry fees are $15 per person and $5 for children 12 and younger and ages 59 or above.
