$43,000 Raised in Support of Cancer Exercise Program at 6th Annual Lace up for LOVE Mother’s Day 1 & 5K Walk/Run

TR3_0097TR3_0133TR3_0123The IRONDames would like to thank all those walkers, runners, volunteers and sponsors who helped make our 6th Annual Lace up for LOVE Walk/Run a huge success! We definitely had Mother Nature on our side this year as we were treated to t-shirt and short’s weather for our Mother’s Day Celebration. This year’s race saw 229 Moms line up at our Start Line alongside family members and friends for our Mother’s Day Walk/Run, helping us raise an amazing $43,000 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 (Mother’s Day Bouquets by Flowers by the Dozen ~ Burlington,  Gear by Neworld Runners & IRONDames), coffee from Tim Hortons, refreshing, creamy and nutritious ice pops by Hippie Pops, yummy cookies by Black Forest Pastry Shop, massages by Larissa of Healthy Endeavours Massage Therapy and our Draw for the TREK VERVE1 WSD bike.

TR3_0225Keeping with tradition everyone crossing the finish line this year was awarded one of our signature medals… a Bernard Callebaut chocolate heart! As well, in celebration of Mother’s Day all Moms received a Lace up for LOVE Custom Buff®.
