MOMs founder’s activism lauded Wendy Riley, a resident of Nevada City and founder of Moms on the Move, was chosen by Charming Shoppes Inc., a family of retail apparel companies, as one of 100 VOICES winners – a contest celebrating remarkable women from across the nation who raised their voices in their communities to create positive change.

Riley and the 99 other selected women from across the country gathered in Houston, Texas, for a recognition ceremony May 17 in their honor.

Riley was selected for her program Moms on the Move, a women-only fund-raising hike that has generated nearly $200,000 in its eight-year history for art and technology programs in local schools.

Given its overwhelming success in Nevada City, Ms. Riley created a nonprofit organization that now offers the fund-raiser as a complete turnkey package to communities throughout the state and across the nation.
