LI moms attend taping of The Ellen DeGeneres show

WOODBURY -

A group of Long Island moms got to take a trip to Los Angeles courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres.

The group was selected through a competition to sit in on a taping of the Ellen show, according to Newsday.

Every year, the group of about 40 moms run obstacle races to raise money for The Morgan Center, a preschool for children with cancer in Hicksville.

The group calls themselves "YOLO".
