On Sunday, 9 May 2021 it is Mother’s Day and time to remember that the hand that rocks the cradle also rules the world.

It is also time to launch a new event – “Run for Mom” – The Mother’s Day Run/Walk. A First, globally!

Mom's are the best. “ She’s never left her footprints on the moon. She’s never made a solo hot air balloon ride around the world. No, she’s just your everyday average girl, but she’s somebody’s hero,” sings Jamie O’Neil. And she is right!

Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the Mother of the Family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of Mothers in society. It is a day which makes people remember the importance and significance of Mothers in their lives and is observed as a day to give special emphasis to the Mothers of the World!


Run for Mom – The Mother’s Day Run adds an active opportunity element to this important day because we will be running and walking to honour the Moms of South Africa and specifically your own Mother.

Mom is a symbol of love and care. Mothers are special because they work round the clock without any complaints to keep others happy. They curb their desires to fulfil those of others and do everything for their family and children. A mother is someone who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.  A mother is your: first friend, your best friend, your forever friend.

On Mother’s Day 2021 we will make sure Mom is honoured as the winner she truly is by giving her the Gold Medal she deserves! That is correct! Every member of Team Family will receive a Silver Medal, but Mom gets to be number one!

The fun for Team Family and you as Team Family Captain starts with:
