Our 18-week peak running season came to an amazing close the last weekend of August, when we celebrated strong women and big accomplishments at our Celebration Banquet and Moms on the Run 5K/10K.
Most Inspirational Member
The most anticipated award of the night, “2017 Most Inspirational Member,” was presented to Tammy Kuehne of Brooklyn Park Moms on the Run. Tammy has coached the Brooklyn Park group for 2 years. This past December, she was in a serious car accident that shattered her left kneecap and right ankle. Forced to learn to do the simplest tasks without the use of her legs in order to heal, she asked her surgeon, “So when can I run again?” While her journey has been long and frustrating and she's not yet able to run, her group says she continues to persevere, hashtagging #MOTRstrong through every hurdle she successfully accomplishes in physical therapy.
