THE MOMS ON THE RUN LEGACY

In 2017, Zebra Crossings was given the opportunity to adopt the Moms On The Run 5K, which was created by Nicole Kurr and Janet Gnall to benefit Dover charities.

“Ten years ago, we were a couple of moms wanting to make a difference in our community, so we decided to organize an event. Our goal was to educate & create awareness of a local non-profit organization.

Our first race had over 300 participants, ten years later we had over 1,000, and our event has donated over $80,000 to local non-profits. WOW, what an amazing experience this has been!!!

We are ready to begin a new journey. We couldn’t be happier to pass the torch to a well-deserved local non-profit, Zebra Crossings of Dover.

We are truly grateful for your support, and continued support of the Moms on the Run race. Many thanks to all for helping a couple of moms make a difference. ”

  • Nicole & Janet, Founders of Moms On The Run

GET TO KNOW US

Each child is unique, but they also have a lot in common and can relate to each other because of their conditions. On their own, they often stand out in their communities because of their perceived limitations or needs. However, in our community, we find strength in numbers and feel empowered. The Zebra Crossings team is committed to furthering this mission.

“It is an amazing experience to not feel alone in the world. To meet and share some wonderful kid stories has given me and my family so much hope for the future”

- Family Camp Parent

“Before camp my son was embarrassed to go to the nurse. He wouldn’t take meds before gym, and then tried to hide his asthma symptoms and chest/lung pain.” Since camp, my son has been willing to take albuterol before gym class, has been more confident and willing to participate in groups with active outdoor activities.”

- Asthma Camp Parent

“Zebra Crossings has given my children a power they never would have learned to unleash. Here, they feel accepted, encouraged and understood. They are taught that what they believe to be their inadequacies, can really be the fire that burns inside of them and makes them a stronger, more courageous, and joyous person. Truly, Zebra Crossings has changed our lives for the better.”

- Thaia Katsos

“I am not sure there are many places where there are such kind, caring people.  It is also a place where others have chronic illnesses, some the same as yours.  It makes it a lot of fun to just talk and relate to someone that you can’t necessarily do at school.”

- Teen participant

“Zebra Crossings is a fun place where you can go and feel safe because they understand how you feel. You get to express yourself and experience all kinds of things and nothing holds you back.”

- Luke, age 10

The efforts of Zebra Crossings are supported by our generous sponsors, both individual and business. Want to join the ranks?
