This last Saturday Moms In Training held a kickoff party for this training season! It was great to meet all the moms in the program. Plus we were handed with a ton of great information about the training schedule, the mission, and fundraising. That’s one of the best parts about being involved with this program: They arm you with a bunch of information to help you through the season.
The thing that stuck with me the most from all of this information was about all the research the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does. The research they do on blood cancers is used to help people with many different types of cancers. Which means that money donated to them helps research most cancers. So awesome.
M.I.T. is holding 2 try it out training sessions. This Saturday (4.12) and the following Saturday (4.19). They will be meeting at 9am at the Lake Harriet Band Shell. This is a fantastic opportunity to go and check out what the training is like. And you can still register on those days too! I will be planning on attending the second session. So if you want to meet up, let me know!
I was lucky enough to attend the Twins Home Opener on Monday with the group. It was a lot of fun. Nice and sunny. A great day to watch some baseball.
Fittingly, it was Stand Up to Cancer day for MLB. They handed out signs so we could write who we stand up for.
Both of Jeremy’s parents have been through at least one type of cancer. Jeremy’s mom passed away almost 3 years ago now from cancer. So to be able to support the LLS and the research they do is very personal for our family.
After the second inning, everyone held up their signs. It was so moving and I honestly teared up a little. I will blame it on the pregnancy hormones. But it was a really special moment.
I hope you consider joining me for a training session! And joining M.I.T.
