Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of the Moms In Training team?
Moms have the chance to stay in shape and train at a location convenient for them. Not only will you meet other moms, but you'll be gaining new workout buddies and play-date opportunities! Additionally, you'll have the ability to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and be a part of the incredible research LLS is doing to cure blood cancers and support Upstate NY and Vermont cancer patients in need.
I know someone affected by cancer. Can I train & fundraise in honor or memory of them?
Absolutely! We encourage you to honor someone you know who has been affected by ANY type of cancer.
Is my child allowed at the work-out?
As long as your baby is able to remain in the stroller, you are welcome to bring your baby to the trainings! The workouts allow you to exercise with a stroller. Jogging strollers are not required.
What if I cannot attend all the work-outs or participate in the May event?
