In a time when people are finding new ways to connect, and organizations like No More Stolen Childhoods are finding new ways to do our vital work, we are excited to be partnering with MOVE Maryland for a virtual day of wellness to benefit NMSC and move Maryland’s nonprofits forward!

With the unprecedented impact to all aspects of life brought on by COVID-19, No More Stolen Childhoods, like most, has had to be quick on its toes. For nonprofits, figuring out how to safely and effectively serve their constituents has been paramount. NMSC has worked hard to shift our trainings to online platforms, making them accessible to trusted adults across the state, whether they are working from home, caring for kids, or doing both at the same time.

In addition to continuing to fulfill their missions, organizations have had to innovate ways to build and sustain community support. When we learned about MOVE Maryland we couldn’t wait to engage in an innovative and fun way to raise funds and awareness for our mission.

On Saturday, November 7, participants will get access to a day of live fitness classes led by some of the best instructors in Maryland and backed by the tunes of DJ Kopec. Did you know that DJ Kopec has been receiving much-deserved national attention in recent months?  He’s raised over $1 million for nonprofits through his virtual dance parties, all broadcasted with his family from their Baltimore basement!

Participants in MOVE Maryland sign up to raise $200 or more for their chosen nonprofit. Since it’s all digital, there’s the possibility to raise funds from across the state, the country, or even the world.  Challenge your neighbors to a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money for NMSC and celebrate on November 7 with a community wide Family Boot Camp class.  Reach out to your college friends on social media and invite them to participate from their homes. Miss your workout buddies? Get everyone to raise funds and celebrate together with a virtual Barre Class on November 7. Have teenagers in your life who need some community service hours? Let’s get them raising money for a nonprofit they believe in and then celebrate with their friends for a day of fitness, music, and fun.
