2020 Virtual Lace Up for Love 1km and 5km Walk/Run/Ride

The Hawkinators

On Sunday, May 10, 2020, our team will be participating in the 11th annual Lace Up for Love 1 km & 5 km Walk/Run.

This event will help raise funds for the cancer support programs and services that Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House provides, free of charge, to individuals and families living with cancer. Please help us reach our fundraising goal so that together we can make a difference in the lives of Wellspring members.

This is our third annual walk for such an Amazing Place!!  WOW three years!! Even saying that is mind boggling!!! Our journey began July 2017.  Melissa was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. A Day after surgery Melissa suffered two strokes and lost the use of her left side.  Doctors told us that Melissa would probably never walk again.  After three months in hospital for rehab and radiation, Melissa was allowed to come home.  The prognosis was grim. Six to nine months was what we were told Melissa had left.  So no rehab was prescribed and we were told not to expect too much.

Wellspring has given us sooo much hope and sooo much encouragement!!  And Melissa is walking and whitty and going from strength to strength. We are currently 32 months strong and every MRI has been clear and stable!! We want to be able to give back to help others who may walk the cancer road alone.  

Please help us reach our fundraising goal!!
