Over $31,000 Raised At 3rd Annual Lace up for LOVE Mother’s Day 1 & 5K Walk/Run

Lace Up for LOVE 2012The IRONDames would like to thank all those walkers, runners, volunteers and sponsors who helped make our 3rd Annual Lace up for LOVE Walk/Run the best yet! 166 Moms kicked off their Mother’s Day celebration with us, along with 327 family members and friends, for a record setting total of 493 participants!

Mother nature cooperated with only a few raindrops, allowing for near perfect race conditions. It was a morning calked full of activities for participants: with face painting and crafts for the kids, to picking up an extra little something for Mom from our Mother’s Day Market vendors (Burlington Blooms Inc., Skinsations Spa and Silpada Jewelry by Jessica Carson), to enjoying a 10 minute massage after the race courtesy of owners Alix Ryan and Samantha Fornoville of Massage Therapy on Plains.  Kids were awarded our signature medals and this year Moms received an IRONDame Original®Buff courtesy of Blueballoon Health Services.
