Navy Run for Mother’s Day

Navy Run family

The King family lace up their runners in preparation for the Navy Run. This family will run together in the 10K portion as a gift to mom for Mother’s Day. Seen here are Kalliana King, Koltin King, PO1 Mike King, and Cathy King holding her Mother’s Day card.

When military spouse Cathy King saw the June 23 Navy Run on a Facebook post, she thought it would be a great opportunity to involve her whole family in an active day.

She suggested her Mother’s Day gift be running the race as a family of four, and the family agreed.

“We have been trying to get on a healthier track,” she said. “I thought we could have some fun and lead by example.”

Both children are very active at school, but PO1 Mike King says they’ve been preparing on the country roads around Cowichan.

“I am hoping it’s the first of many things like this that we can take part in together,” he says.  

It will be a busy day for the family. Following the run they’ll head to Cowichan to take part in the Big Bike Ride.
