2018 Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run Walk Ride

It’s that time of year, when our team jumps right into planning for the annual Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run, Walk & Ride.


First, let me take a moment to introduce myself. I am Lindsay Papousek, and I am the new Volunteer Coordinator for the Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run, Walk & Ride. I am so excited to be a part of the dynamic and passionate team that plans, organizes and executes this annual family fundraiser in Calgary. In my role, I am responsible for recruiting and providing guidance to the numerous volunteers we need to help run an amazing and successful event! If you choose to volunteer, you can count on me to be there every step of the way leading up to and on event day.


This years’ event will take place, as it has, on Mother’s Day, which falls on Sunday, May 13th at Chinook Center. An important change to this years’ event is the Package Pick Up as we have moved from its previous location at Max Bell Centre. It will now take place inside Chinook Centre (Bay Court – South End of Mall) from Thursday, May 10th to Saturday, May 12th, 2018. The Run, Walk & Ride will kick off on Sunday morning with thousands of participants taking to the streets of Calgary…all in support of Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities and Calgary Health Trust (Foothills Medical Centre – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).

Year over year, this event has been successful because of its dedicated volunteers! If you have volunteered in the past, we would love to see you back. And if you’re a new volunteer, I just know you’ll come to want to be a part of it for years to come. We have a variety of positions you can sign up for, both on Package Pick Up days and the Run, Walk & Ride event day itself!
