Run with Moms in Training
Want to get in shape, meet other moms in your area and help fight cancer? Gymtime Rhythm and Glues is proud to announce its partnership with Moms In Training, a special program designed just for moms benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (“LLS”). Whether you rarely exercise or are an avid runner/walker, here is your chance to get fit while doing something that will make your children proud!
Moms In Training is a flexible 10-week work-out program on Saturday mornings at 9am in nine NYC parks, two of which are close to Gymtime on the upper east side, Central Park at 72nd Street and 90th and 5th Avenue. The program starts on Saturday, April 5, 2014 and culminates with an all-women’s 6.2 mile run/walk in Central Park on June 14, 2014. Gymtime mother of three, Julie Kopel, says “Moms in Training was truly a memorable and inspirational experience for me and my family. I was so energized by the cause that I just signed up to participate in my second race of the year.”
Julie Meyerowich, also a Gymtime mom of three explains her reason for participating, “I first became involved with LLS, 15 years ago after my brother was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Nearly 10 years later, my husband was diagnosed with the very same disease. I was 8 months pregnant with our 3rd child at the time. When I heard about Moms in Training, I immediately wanted to get involved. Moms play such an important role when a family member is battling cancer and when moms get together anything is possible.”
Space is limited. For more information, please visit the Moms in Training website or contact email@example.com; 212-376-5145
