Pocatello, ID. – In its 11th successful year, Southeastern Idaho Public Health (SIPH) will again host the Annual Mom n’ Me 5k Fun Run/Walk. The event will take place on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13, 2018, at the Portneuf Wellness Complex.

The Mom n’ Me 5k Fun Run/Walk is an effort to create a healthy tradition for friends and family on
Mother’s Day. It is not competitive & is untimed. We do this so that everyone and all abilities can participate, said Dana Solomon, Mom ‘n Me Organizer.

This year during the event we will be hosting a diaper drive for the Idaho Diaper Bank. Please donate diapers to help families in southeast Idaho.
