How can I get involved as a volunteer for MOTR?
Moms on the Run has been very fortunate
to be supported by 200 volunteers that put on
the various events on Mother’s Day. Currently,
we may need a few more Race Marshals for the 10K
race route. Go to “ABOUT US” on the
top banner and find the VOLUNTEERS & STAFF
information and registration area. Someone will
contact you and see how you can help Moms on the
What types of cancer do you assist local women with?
We currently assist woman going
through treatment for breast cancer and all other
How do we differ from other cancer fund raisers?
Many outstanding associations exist
to help in the research and emotional support
of women with various cancers. Moms on the
Run has identified the everyday financial needs
of a woman impacted by women's cancers such as
groceries, rent, car payments, gas, child care
and medications, etc. that become family and personal
financial impracticalities as a result of the
effects of treatments which may impair a women’s
ability to work.
What is the farthest point of geographical assistance?
We help women who reside in Northern Nevada.
Why don’t you assist men with cancer?
Currently, our resources are limited
and require us to focus our support to our original
target of Northern Nevada women with breast cancer
and other women's cancers.
How do you apply for assistance?

What other events does MOTR hold to raise
All funds for Moms on the Run are
raised through our main event which is the 5k/10k
Run Walk every Mother's Day. We also hold two
other major fund raisers in May: The
Runway for Life Fashion Show and the Ride
for the Tatas Motorcycle Poker Run. We also
hold small fundraisers throughout the year like
for the Jugs" and "Purses for a
Purpose" events. You can drop off your used
jewelry and purses at any Pinocchio's
Restaurant. We will sell the used items at
our other fundraising events. Please call 826-5117

Who decides on where the money goes?
Ultimately, the board of directors of Moms on the Run is responsible for the allocation of financial assistance. Currently, Moms on the Run receives application of funds through the Reno Cancer Foundation on a monthly basis and approves their distribution based upon their recommendation and the Moms on the Run Financial Assistance Policy.
Is there a limit on how much you’ll
give to one recipient?
Currently, no specific maximum limit
is specified. Each person’s financial situation
is reviewed on an individual basis. Consideration
is always given to providing financial aid to
the broadest number of women possible.
