Moms In Training Savannah: Moms committed to reaching their personal goals while helping cancer patients reach theirs

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Moms in Training code Savannah

There’s no influence like a mom’s. It’s a power that can do good for blood cancer patients everywhere; which is why Moms in Training is looking for moms and moms-to-be to join them.

The program is geared towards moms with kids of all ages looking to get in shape and help save lives while doing it.

It’s called Moms In Training, inspired by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) premier fundraising campaign, Team In Training.

Moms In Training meets the needs of today’s busy moms. It’s a flexible 8-10-week workout program where moms come together to get in shape while raising funds for cancer treatments.

Once training is completed, you will have the opportunity to complete 3.1 mile walk or run at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah 5K with family, friends and neighbors cheering you on! If you would like complete an event that is a longer distance, there’s Team In Training, which will prepare you for marathons (26.2 miles), half marathons (13.1), triathlons and hike events. To learn more, watch the Moms In Training video https://bitly.com/momsvideo.

Here’s what Moms In Training will do for you:

Get in shape and reach personal goals

Flexible workout schedules

Meet other moms in your communities

Create social networking groups

Help each other with training and fundraising

Attend events throughout the season for you and your family

Here’s what you will do for cancer patients:

Help save lives

Raise funds for cancer research

Contribute to the LLS goal of a world without blood cancers.

Proof that fundraising programs like Moms In Training work are reflected in the fact that in 1960 only 3% of all children with a blood cancer survived. Today, thanks to funds raised by moms like you, it’s a 90% survival rate. But we need to continue working to find cures and ensure access to treatments not someday, but today.

Join us and other moms in your community. Get In Shape. Meet Moms. Fight Cancer.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been introducing you to your Moms in Training captains who will be encouraging you during your Saturday mornings runs in Daffin Park.

Today we’re introducing you to James (pictured here) –  the Moms In Training Honored Hero this season.

James is 4 years old and was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in August of 2013. James has gone through quite a bit in his short life. He’s endured chemo, radiation, bone marrow biopsies, transfusions and many more procedures.

Expected to be done with treatment in December of 2016, James is a happy boy who loves video games, super heroes, trucks…all things little boy. He has good days and some not so good days as a side effect from his treatment.

With all that he has been through, his family says they are so very thankful that most days he is just a wild little boy.

Moms In Training is a way to help cancer patients like James.

Moms in Training includes weekly Saturday morning training sessions (8-9 am at Daffin Park).

Meet at the corner of Waters & Washington. Walkers, runners and strollers welcome.

My first Team in Training event was Nike Womens Marathon in San Francisco in 2013. I actually signed up the year before but ended up pregnant instead! My son, Jonathan is in college and my daughter, Jordan is almost three! My brother has Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and training and fundraising gives me a feeling of empowerment! I feel like I am able to do something for him. The motivation that comes from the Team and the friendships that form are just icing on the cake! I look forward to helping each of you reach your goals this Fall.
