Moms on the Run is honored to be named one of the 25 largest Twin Cities-based franchise companies in Minnesota. Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal recently featured Moms on the Run in their latest publication here.
"They did a great job of spreading our positive message for business during a tough economic year," explained Founder and CEO Karissa Johnson. "I didn't get to choose everything they included in the article of course. They missed my emphasis on how awesome our franchisees are and how everyone's teamwork and positive attitudes are getting us through this challenging time!"
It is true: Moms on the Run would not be possible without our franchisees, our members and our sponsors. Thank you!
Imagine living in a community where people are already going without food. Enter in a global health pandemic — experts predict COVID-19's impact will leave 265 million on the brink of starvation this year — and you have an even bigger problem. Since our inception, Moms on the Run has chosen to donate 10% of our profits to our charity partner, Feed My Starving Children. This year, Moms on the Run is proud to sponsor the Race to Feed Kids, Sept. 21-26, encouraging families to outrun 2020 and step in the gap against global hunger.
You can be a part of the race by creating a fundraising page here, choosing your activity goal and recruiting family and friends to join you. Your "race" can be any activity you want: run, bike, do chores, rake leaves. This event takes the place of FMSC's annual in-person fundraising gala. Join us in the Race to Feed Kids.

Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares tips regarding strengthening our running, fitness and health. Are you a heel, mid-foot or forefoot runner? It's tough to change your strike, but today Carrie shares information about how to minimize injury by thinking about your foot plant.
As the official training partner for Women Run the Cities, Moms on the Run is back with another training tip: Plan ahead! If you have run Women Run the Cities before, you have an idea of the general route. Perhaps you're running a new route this year. As is the case with any race, it’s important to map your route. In addition, think about things that make the run a bit easier: Have your own hydration stations, know where your bathroom or porta potty stops are along your route and get a few people to cheer you on throughout the course.
There's still time to take part in this year's Women Run the Cities virtual race. Run now anytime through Sept. 20. Click here for more details.
