The Moms in Training program is an 8-week fitness group for moms that trains participants to run a 5-mile or 15K charity walk/run for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The program will host several kick-off events in NYC and CT where new members can join.
If you're a mom, you're inevitably a multitasker. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Moms in Training program gives new meaning to multitasking, allowing moms to get in shape, meet new friends, and raise money for the fight against cancer all at the same time.
Moms in Training is an 8-week fitness program that culminates with either a 5-mile or 15K run/walk. It welcomes participants of all athletic abilities to workout together once a week and fundraise along the way for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, who's goal is to find a cure for blood cancers.
