The IRONDames would like to thank all those walkers, runners, volunteers and sponsors who helped make our 5th Annual Lace up for LOVE Walk/Run a huge success! The weather could not have been better, as we were treated to warm temperatures and sunshine! This year’s race saw 172 Moms line up at our Start Line alongside family members and for our Mother’s Day Walk/Run, helping us raise an incredible $40,000 for the Cancer Exercise Program at Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House.
Thank you to our Mother’s Day Market vendors and activity volunteers. We hope this years’ participants enjoyed the face painting, gifts for Mom (Jewellery by Marisa, Gear by Neworld Runner’s, PacePerformance & IRONDames), massages by Larissa of Healthy Endeavours Massage Therapy and our Running Shoe Draw.
Everyone crossing the finish line this year was awarded one of our signature medals… chocolate covered cookie hearts! As well, in celebration of Mother’s Day all Moms received a carnation courtesy of Lakeland Tailored Landscapes.
