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+.

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.
