Mission Statement

Mothers Across America motivates, educates and supports mothers to optimize emotional and physical health through team sports. MAAM is committed to promoting fitness as a way to improve health, lessen the incidence of maternal depression and foster positive self image for mothers and their children through goal setting and sports participation.

Description

MAAM conducts goal-oriented running and walking programs for mothers within a socially supportive team framework.

Mothers face unique barriers to exercise and the achievement of personal goals, often leading to increased physical and emotional health risks.

Charlotte Gould, director, founded MAAM in response to an episode of post partum depression following the birth of her daughter. She has discovered that physically active mothers develop stronger self images and goal-setting skills, and raise healthier, happier families by extension .

Founded in April 2003, MAAM boasts steady growth and retention rates. Members are culturally and socio-economically diverse.MAAM has partnered with numerous local and national non-profits to develop programs and bring fitness opportunities to communities at high risk for obesity-related disease.

MAAM is New York City based with a growing national membership. Training programs are available nationally via MAAM's Virtual Coach.
