Moms In Training

Moms can join an eight-week program, Moms in Training, to ready them for upcoming 5K or 10K runs.

When you’re a busy mom chasing after little ones, signing up for a marathon or a triathlon fundraiser can feel like too much of a challenge. That’s why the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) created Moms In Training! This eight-week flexible program features workouts for moms of all ages who sign up to complete a short-distance event, committing to raising a minimum of $500. In its first season, 13 moms completed the Flying Pig 5K and 10K and raised $11,000!

“It’s wonderful to meet other moms from the area,” says Amy Boynton, whose 3-year-old daughter Ella is this year’s Honored Hero.

“We train together with the same goal while raising money for a good cause. It was a nice time for Ella and me, who came to some of the training with me.”

Beginning Saturday, Aug. 9, moms will meet with a coach at Weller Park (8832 Weller Road, Montgomery) on Saturday mornings to train for the Queen Bee Half Marathon or the four-mile run/walk on Saturday, Oct. 11.

For details, or to sign up, contact Maggie.Stuart@lls.org, call 513-698-2533, or visit teamintraining.org/soh.
