“Moms of young children often struggle to fit in time for their own exercise and health, amidst all of the time and effort they put into taking care of their children and families,” says Jennifer Kedrowski, mother of 2 and owner of Stroller Strides of Raleigh.  “However in order to take the best care of our families, we, as moms, do need to take care of ourselves and make sure that we are healthy.  Getting exercise and leading a healthy lifestyle will ultimately make us better moms, physically, mentally & emotionally.  We want to remind local moms, especially during those tough early-years, that getting active is worth it, and we are proud to offer a way for moms to get exercise in AND spend time with their children (through Stroller Strides workouts), while they also meet other moms who they can lean on for support.”

The event is aimed at moms of stroller-aged children, 0-4, but all local moms are welcome to come, and the evening session will include a free Zumba workout and other classes put on by Pure Body Fitness as well as another Stroller Strides demo.

In addition to the free activities and sessions for moms and kids, local businesses and organizations will have tables and offer samples, coupons, goods & services in a ‘Fit Mama Fair’ during the daytime session.
