About This Activity

The 32nd Annual Mother’s Day Run for Shelter brings together nearly 700 runners, 100 businesses, and the City of Watsonville in support of Pajaro Valley Shelter Services. Our mission is to assist homeless women, children and families to obtain stable housing through temporary shelter and services. The program helps women, children and families end the causes and cycles of homelessness – one family at a time. By lifting their dignity, identifying their barriers and helping to set their goals, homeless families develop the skills and attitudes necessary to move on to stable housing and improved personal and economic self-sufficiency.
