Once again we were treated to a sunny warm morning by Mother Nature for our Mother’s Day Celebration. This year’s race saw 463 participants take the Start Line with their Moms, family members and friends for our Mother’s Day Walk/Run, helping us raise $35,000 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, beautiful hand-made jewellery by Eliza Perry Jewellery, fashionable and trendy clothing by Love Leggings Hamilton, gear by  IRONDames), coffee from Tim Hortons, water and hydration drink samples by RE7 Canada and our Draw for the TREK VERVE1 WSD bike.

In keeping with tradition everyone crossing the finish line was awarded one of our signature medals… a Manitoulin Chocolate Works chocolate heart! As well, in celebration of Mother’s Day all Moms received a Lace up for LOVE Custom Buff®.
