COLONIE, N.Y. – On Saturday, mothers in the Capital Region came together to support blood cancer patients.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Upstate New York and Vermont Chapters Moms in Training Inaugural season was held at 9 a.m. at The Crossings in Colonie.
The program is designed to engage mothers in the fight against blood cancer through an 8 week training program which is also kid-friendly. Mothers train to run a 5k or 15k with the help of certified coaches. While they train, money is raised for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The lead volunteer, Kristi Miller, ran her first 15k since the birth of her son. She had the goal of raising $500 through the program.
