Moms are awesome. After all, who is more passionate about the health and wellness of kids than moms? Today we’re taking a little break from usual Jolly Tomato business to celebrate those moms who go above and beyond every day.
Red Tricycle and Blue Shield of California have teamed up on a program called We Shield Moms to spotlight local moms that are on a mission to promote health and wellness in their communities. These women have inspired others to promote healthy, balanced and active lives—all the while balancing the needs of their own families. (Not easy, we know!)
These moms include Nicole Dawes, the Founder and CEO of Late July Organic Snacks, who is committed to providing healthy, organic snack foods to our kids; and Stephanie and Beth (the moms behind OC Mommies) who put together a fundraising event called Trike 41, where over 100 toddlers rode tricycles to raise $10,000 for other kids their age fighting cancer.
Every day, in every town, more moms like these are making a difference all over California. Are you one of these moms, or do you know someone like them? Red Tricycle and Blue Shield of California want to know all about it! You may nominate yourself, or nominate a friend, in the We Shield Moms contest. Entrants will have the chance to win a $5,000 grant to donate to the charity of their choice, a $500 shopping spree, and a family membership to local zoo or museum.
To enter or nominate a friend, visit the We Shield Moms page on Facebook. And go hug a mom today.
