Midway through the summer session of 2019, Shakopee Moms on the Run member Kristin Carlson was diagnosed with leukemia. Throughout her battle, which included hospitalizations and month-long treatments, she realized that Moms on the Run gave her the strength she needed — both physically and mentally — to fight for her life.
Shakopee Moms on the Run Franchise Owner, Angie Burgess shares: "I'm happy to report that Kristin is currently in remission and has stepped back into her role as assistant coach and has worked hard to gain back what she lost, physically, while she was fighting cancer. I could not be more proud of Kristin's determination, persistence and resilience throughout the past couple of years."
