Lakeville/Burnsville Moms on the Run Franchise Owner and Head Coach, Kim Burggraaf, was recently invited to share her story with The Faces of Lakeville. Writer Annie Collins shares:
"Once you start reading this story, you will quickly understand why Kim Burggraaf, franchise owner of Lakeville Moms On The Run, was nominated to be featured as one of The Faces of Lakeville. Kim is one of the most genuine people in our community who is easily inspired by others ... however, SHE is the one that truly inspires so many around her. After talking with her for just a few minutes, I immediately felt like I have known her for awhile! Her story on how she ended up as franchise owner for both Lakeville & Burnsville Moms on the Run is a good one. It felt like it was all meant to be!"
We are so proud of Kim and all of her hard work she puts in to build her Moms on the Run community in Lakeville and Burnsville.
"I feel so honored to have been nominated - what a fun surprise that was!" exclaims Kim. "Big thanks to the community member that nominated me and to Amy at The Faces of Lakeville for taking time to share our story!"

You never know what you’re going to find when you’re plogging! If you haven’t heard of plogging, it is a combination of running, jogging and picking up garbage. In honor of Earth Day, Lakeville/Burnsville Moms on the Run chose to plog during their morning run — and they were literally rewarded with a surprise! Franchise Owner Kim Burggraaf found a $100 bill in the woods as her MOTR group was picking up garbage. They plan to donate to a local environmental group. What a fun full circle moment!
Jacksonville Moms on the Run represented well at the Donna Marathon on Feb. 6. This is the 15th anniversary of the Donna, a national marathon to fight against breast cancer held in Jacksonville Beach.
Eighteen members of Jacksonville Moms on the Run ran the half marathon — resulting in eight PRs! Two Jacksonville members ran their first full — both finished in 5:05. AMAZING!
"The Donna Marathon to end breast cancer is a special race for MOTR Jax!" exclaimed Moms on the Run-Jacksonville Franchise Owner Amy Magdalein. "We had lots of our women running and JUST AS MANY cheering on the sidelines. The community support and feel-good feelings were in full force in Jacksonville!"
