Joanne Hutchins, Founder of Moms Who Kick Inc. states the reason to take part of the event is because "the mission of Moms Who Kick is to promote fitness and nutrition in order to lead a healthy lifestyle. What better way to get people active than to participate in the Battle of the Causes? This event will bring together some wonderful charities, help raise awareness, have some fun and a little competition never hurts either!" Moms Who Kick Inc, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that benefits cutting edge breast cancer research at local area hospitals and supports healthy lifestyles.
The sentiment was continued, with Bob Policastro, Founder and Executive Director of Angela’s house, "I view this event with a different twist, we are all causes and every day we battle to find cures, help people and do good for our community but this can only come true if we create the awareness of our non-profits. This event allows us to join together in fun to battle and ultimately help our community.”
