Who We Are

Michelle Duvall Kalinski, Founder and Chief Entertainment Officer of BRINGtheKIDZ, is an athlete and mom in Boulder, Colorado. Over the last two decades, she has competed in seven full marathons, two triathlons, and more half marathons, 10-milers, 10ks, and 5ks than she can remember! Now the mother of two and wife of a runner/triathlete, it had become increasingly difficult to schedule races around available childcare. Upon discovering that many other parents in the area faced the same challenge, she decided to create a solution. Putting her background in education and project management to use, Michelle formed the business, originally known as PRKids, in 2014. 

She is thrilled to be able to satisfy a need in this community and looks forward to meeting you at the next race along with an amazing team of Munchkin Managers!
