Denver Northwest Moms on the Run hosted a holiday light run and toy drive on Dec. 6 to benefit Jeffco Action Center. The small group of runners donated toys for Jeffco Action Center, a nonprofit organization that helps those in the community experiencing hardship and offers the resources and services needed to stabilize lives and promotes pathways to lasting change.
Apple Valley and Farmington Moms on the Run partnered with The Meeting Point for an event on Dec. 8, to raise $1,300 in gift cards for local nonprofit, Moms and Neighbors.
Franchise Owner Jenna Allerson posted, "Our goal was to raise $1,000 for families in our community and we far exceeded that with raising over $1,300. 100% of these donations will go directly to the families in need! We're so grateful for everyone who came out and gave so generously and for all of our local businesses who donated to make beautiful prize packs for our four lucky winners!"
The Sun Thisweek featured Apple Valley and Farmington Moms on the Run in an article titled "Raising the 'Barre' for a good cause in Rosemount."

Last weekend was Twin Cities Marathon weekend in Minnesota. Congrats to our Fitness Director Carrie Tollefson for WINNING the Women's Masters Division, to our race partner Twin Cities In Motion for putting on an amazing event, and to all of you fabulous ladies who ran your hearts out and left it all on the course — both marathon and 10 mile! We especially loved seeing Jacksonville (FL) Moms on the Run Franchise Owner Amy Magdalein on our St. Paul/Minneapolis course! Check out all the fun photos from our cheer zone.
Did you know July 4th is now the second most popular holiday among runners, second only to Thanksgiving? In many ways, running is the ultimate celebration of the American dream: You give it everything you’ve got, relying on your inner strength — and that of your comrades — every step of the way. How better to celebrate the sport that makes you feel as free and alive as the country you live in?
At Moms on the Run, we want you to get out and run on the 4th of July, before all of your celebrations and backyard BBQs. Plan your run, either by participating with one of our locations in a fun run or selecting your own route or race. We think 4 miles on the 4th sounds ideal, but you can choose your distance. Wear your patriotic colors (or hopefully our cute tank!) and then post your pics, tagging us with the hashtag #FOURonthe4th.
A couple of tips to remember: It’s usually a really hot day, so remember to wear your sunscreen and a sun hat/visor and stay hydrated — drinking lots of water and filling your body back up with electrolytes — so that you can enjoy the rest of the day with family and friends. Happy Independence Day everyone!
