This run we even took the kids and they ran with us! The Jiggle Butt was a run that benefited Domestic Violence Women’s Shelter of Tarrant County. Safe Haven changes the lives of women and children affected by domestic violence, and we were glad we were a part of it!  The non-profit corporation Got2DreamBigg.Org’s purpose is to promote healthy lifestyles and fitness for people of all ages and abilities. The Jiggle Butt Run event is just one way Got2DreamBigg.Org is living out it’s mission for women and children. Not only does the Jiggle Butt Run promote health and fitness but it directly benefits the Safe Haven Women’s Shelter. The Safe Haven Women’s Shelter is a facility that reaches out to women and children in the face of domestic violence. We enjoyed taking the kids with us and really earned out “Supermom” head bands by bondiband for sure!!  Be sure to keep up with all our runs and support our sponsors  listed below!!
