Harry Potter 10k-Monterey Mommies

Monterey Mommies is hosting a FREE local Hogwarts Running Club run/walk/bike event that honors the beloved House Elves who have served the Wizarding World for centuries…especially our favorite house elf, Dobby!

Harry Potter fans all over the world will be moving their bodies for a Harry Potter 10k, or 6.2 miles, on March 25, 2017. We’ll have our own group covering the mileage starting at Lover’s Point and going down the bike path to the Wharf. Joining in on our group is absolutely free. If you want a medal, simply register at this link  (not required to join us), and then pick how you want to earn it! Running, walking, pushing strollers, biking or roller skating-any way is a great way! Again-no need to register for a medal to participate and everyone will be moving at their own pace.

We don’t know exactly which day it was, but we do know that Dobby gave his life to rescue his friends from Malfoy Manor in March 1998. So, we’ve picked the last Saturday in March as the day we will run in memory of our favorite house elf!

Register here for your medal (if you want one-not required) and then let us know you’re coming by registering for our meet-up using this Eventbrite page!

We can’t wait to see you on March 25 at 9am!

**Monterey Mommies is not affiliated with The Hogwarts Running Club-the medal and race theme is put on through HRC. Monterey Mommies is hosting a free meet-up for those who want to get their miles in on the morning of March 25th in a community setting. You do not need to sign up for the HRC medal to meet up with us, nor do you need to meet up with us to sign up for the medal! 😉

This event also raises money for a great organization! Hermione just wanted to do some good in the world. Hermione was determined to make life better for House Elves working in Hogwarts Castle and throughout the wizarding world. Her compassion for their well-being and her support of their freedom demonstrated her leadership abilities and led to the elves fighting to defend Hogwarts in the final battle of the Wizarding War. It is in this spirit, we are thrilled to announce that proceeds from this event will go to support the Harry Potter Alliance and their Granger Leadership Academy. The Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) believes that the world needs more Hermione Grangers. Since its inception two years ago, the Granger Leadership Academy has empowered 200 young leaders, primarily young women, and turned these fans of popular stories into real-world heroes who will “do some good in the world.” Your participation in the 10k & S.P.E.W. will provide numerous scholarships and help defray costs for youth who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend. Remaining funds will go to support HPA’s Accio Books campaign to increase childhood literacy and create a whole new generation of heroes. Please visit www.thehpalliance.org to learn more about what your donation will accomplish!
