More Effort Now Equals Less Worry Later (Week 18)

Roasted Veggies: Great way to meal prep.

Roasted Veggies: Great way to meal prep.

Here is last week’s report and a highlight of the events this week. There is a lot going on since it is Mother’s Day week. Yes, we celebrate Mother’s Day all week at Be Better Movement. Why? Because we feel the impact of mothers deserve to be celebrated and the awareness of the maternal health crisis needs to be addressed.

This report is from the #bebetter52 challenge to meal plan April 29-May 5th,  2019.

Challenges Completed and Money Raised:

Year-to-date we have raised $701.50 for Every Mother Counts! That is 1519 challenges completed.

Make sure to sign up for Virtual Run on May 11th

On May 11th, women around the nation will come together virtually to walk or run in the 2nd Annual Run to Believe virtual run. This race is donating 100% of proceeds to Every Mother Counts. All you have to do is register at More Miles Race and then grab your running shoes and head out anytime and anywhere on May 11th.

Download App: Charity Miles

The app is totally free to download and enables you to raise money for a variety of causes through simply bringing your phone on a walk. The longer you walk, the more the program donates. Once the app is downloaded, simply scroll down until you see Every Mother Counts, select it, and start moving!

Host a local Be Better Event:

One of our Be Better Team Captains in Orange County had a great idea. She thought it would be amazing to invite all the Orange County 52’ers to a “kid friendly” hike on Wednesday morning at 10:30am at Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve (2301 University Drive, Newport Beach, CA). 

I think this is going to be a great opportunity to involve our children in the concept of walking for a cause. Of course everyone is invited (with or without kids) to simply connect with other women participating in Be Better. 

Let us know if you host a #bebetter event in your neighborhood by emailing aly@bebettermovement.com or tagging us on instagram @mybebetter.

My Be Better Boxes:

Only 6 days till Mother’s Day and the My Be Better Box shop is back open for business. Each subscriber will receive thoughtful and purposeful items in their bi-monthly box that help them successfully complete the challenges for the month. Great gift to give a mother, any mother.
