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.

Moms in Training in Savannah

Here’s a great way to get in shape, meet other moms & help fight cancer.

Take part in Moms in Training in Savannah.

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

First training session is August 22 2015, 8AM at Daffin Park. Meet at the corner of Waters & Washington. Walkers, runners and strollers welcome. RSVP to Jennie.Brewster@LLS.org

More Info: Jennie.Brewster@LLS.org or 912-436-3273

Moms in Training Savannah What is Moms In Training?
Moms In Training is a flexible, 12-week training program for Savannah area moms to get in shape, meet other moms and help fight blood cancers. Trainings take place for one hour on the weekends with other social event opportunities during the week.

Even though it’s called Moms in Training, dads are welcome to join, too. You don’t necessarily need to be a mom to take part. If someone is interested in training for the half marathon relay and has lots of patience with kiddos, they are welcome to join the program too.

Why Join?
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. In 1964, the chance of surviving Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood leukemia, was 3%. Thanks to treatments advanced by LLS, children 15 years old and younger who are fighting ALL today have a 92% chance for survival.

LLS and Moms In Training participants are saving lives, and all moms are invited to join the fight for a cure.

Can I bring my child to trainings?
Yes! As long as your baby is able to remain in the stroller, you are welcome to bring him or her to trainings. The workouts allow you to exercise with a stroller, but it is not necessary. Some moms prefer to use the hour as “me” time.

What do trainings consist of?
Trainings will consist of running, walking, cross training and stretching.

I’m not an athlete! Can I really do this?
Yes! Moms of all levels join the program. You will receive incredible coach support as well as a training calendar that you can follow on your own. The program is extremely flexible, and you are supported 100% of the way.

How much do I fundraise to participate?
Moms commit to raising $500 to help fight blood cancers. There is a $50 registration fee to join which is credited toward your fundraising goal. Upon registering, you will receive your own fundraising website as well as fundraising support from LLS staff. The average mom raises $1,500!

I know someone personally affected by cancer. Can I train in honor or memory of them?
Absolutely. Moms in Training encourages you to honor someone you know who has been affected by ANY type of cancer.

How do I sign up?
Click here.
