Have you ever wanted to learn to run?
You know it is more fun with friends, right?
momstown Hamilton has joined forces with Team in Training with their
MOMS IN TRAINING program!!
We are committed to running the Healing For Women's Cancers Race at Bronte Creek Provincial Park on June 7.
We will train together every Saturday morning at 8:30 am starting on May 3, 2014 with a team of coaches from Mohawk College and we will train at their brand new recreational facilities on their indoor track! Fees are only $50 and all training & support is included. To be eligible to run the race you need to raise $500 in sponsorship. You could also train with us for $50 without entering the race. You do not have to be a momstown program pass holder to join our team!

Because we all know someone touched by cancer.
Because a parent should never have to watch their child battle cancer.
Because as moms, we can give back and make a difference.
