We are sad to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year's MOMs on the Mountain event until next year. With you and your family's health and safety in mind, given the increased COVID cases our county has seen as well as the current wildfires and the air quality that has ensued, we felt it best to press pause again this year in hopes that we can gather together again in 2022.
If you have already registered and would like a refund of your registration fee, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a refund as soon as possible via PayPal. Alternatively, if you would like to leave your registration fee with the Foundation, we will use all proceeds to continue offering enriching educational opportunities and support for our schools in order to provide our students with the best possible educational experience in the Nevada City School District.
We appreciate you and your desire to support MOMs on the Mountain and wish nothing more than to be able to see you up there next year. Keep an eye on Facebook and School Newsletters this spring for a save the date notification.

What is MOMs?
MOMs on the Mountain is a fundraiser for the Nevada City Schools Foundation, which benefits the students of our school district. It is a non-competitive day of scenic beauty, personal challenge and fun for women: mothers and non-moms alike. We’ve had 3 generations hiking and raising funds at the same event. Our hikers have ranged in age from 18 to 80+.
Why Should You Come?
It's really fun and it's for the kids!
This year we are at it again and hope to make it the best year yet. The monies raised from MOMs directly affects all the students in the Nevada City School district and helps them have a more enriched education. For the next few years, NCSF will focus its funding goals primarily towards the implementation of STEM curriculum in the Nevada City Schools.
