Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and Kids Fun Run Benefit for Our Haven Homeless Shelter

Club Encourages Community Participation in the Run 4 Shelter and New Club Membership

(August 10, 2011, Stevensville, MD) The Chesapeake Moms Club (CMC) is a sponsor of the Run 4 Shelter 10K, 5K and Kids Fun Run to be held September 10, 2011 (beginning at 7:30 a.m. from the parking area at Kent Island Narrows Shopping Outlets just off Piney Narrows Road.) All proceeds of the event benefit Our Haven Shelter, the only cold winter shelter available to assist the homeless population in Queen Anne's County. Our Haven Shelter not only provides housing, food, and clothing to men, women and children, but its staff works throughout the year to find their beneficiaries permanent homes and jobs.

CMC Charities Coordinator, Kelly Corchiarino of Stevensville Maryland, is the Chesapeake Mom’s Club Team Captain for this year’s Run, “CMC has committed to garnering at least 25 runners on our team.” You do not need to be a member of our club to join the Chesapeake Mom’s Club Team, so please join our “team” in running this year’s event. For more information on registering to join the CMC Team for the Run 4 Shelter events, contact Kelly Corchiarino ( or register directly at (Choose registration and then Chesapeake Mom’s Club team).

CMC is also sponsoring the Kids Fun Run this year, a 40-yard dash starting at 10:00 a.m. in the same start location as the Run 4 Shelter (parking area at Kent Island Narrows Shopping Outlets just off Piney Narrows Road). “The Kids Fun Run is an amazing opportunity for our children to learn the importance of charity and the positive impact that they can have on their community” Corchiarino says.

The Kids Fun Run is open to all ages and will be broken into several categories (zero to two, three to five, and six plus). We will also have extracurricular activities available for the children who participate in the Kids Fun Run. Please register directly at Children can also register for the Kids Fun Run at the race on September 10th. The cost is ten dollars per child.

One hundred percent of the Run 4 Shelter event registration fees (including the Kids Fun Run), will be donated to Our Haven Homeless Shelter, even if team members do not directly participate in the events.
