Steel Magnolia moms
Twelve local moms of children with special needs are training and raising funds for the Ragnar Relay – 200 miles from San Francisco to Napa Valley – Oct. 25-26. Each runner on the Super Steel Magnolia Team is raising $3,000 for Steel Magnolia Moms, which started in the Memorial area and hosts wellness workshops, retreats, socials and educational seminars. It encourages moms to take a break, have fun and connect outside of motherhood to maintain a healthy lifestyle. See steelmagnoliamoms.com. Pictured are (back row, from left) Nikki Thomason, Dahlia Brown, Kelly Scoggins, Dawn Kemp, Shana Halvorsen; (front row, from left) Liz Maberry, Shannon Essex, Marla Grace, Elizabeth Elder, Evelyn Nordin, Laura Ryan and Kate Peden. They all say they’re not runners, but they’re committed and inspired by their children. To donate, see crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/steel-magnolia-moms-run-ragnar-relay1.
