$40,000 Raised At Our 5th Annual Mother’s Day Lace up for LOVE!

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.
