Blue Shield and Red Tricycle Celebrate Moms Who Make a Difference

In Uncategorized by Christina Montoya FiedlerLeave a Comment

As moms, we keep our kids clean, clothed, and well fed. We wipe butts, put band-aids on booboos, and celebrate victories. But in these changing times, things aren’t always that simple.

The health and wellness of our children is fast becoming a priority in a society where junk food, video games, and YouTube have become the norm.  Anything from adding more fruits and veggies to meals to supporting your local farmers market brings awareness to the plight.

Red Tricycle and Blue Shield of California have teamed up to spotlight local moms that are on a mission to promote health and wellness in their communities. These ladies have inspired others to promote healthy and active lives—all the while balancing the needs of their own family.

Ready to get inspired?  Read more about Moms Who Make a Difference on Red Tricycle. There you’ll find out about moms like Nicole Dawes, the Founder and CEO of Late July Organic Snacks, who remains committed to providing healthy, organic snack foods to our kids. And you’ll learn more about Stephanie and Beth, the moms behind OC Mommies. They put together a fundraising event called Trike 41, where over 100 toddlers rode tricycles to fundraise $10,000 for other kids their age fighting cancer.

OC Mommies making a difference and raising awareness for health education.
