Alabama Saints volunteer at 'Walk of Life' event

Close to 100 volunteers from the Montgomery Alabama Stake found joy in serving with the 10th Annual Joy to Life Foundation’s "Walk of Life" on April 16, which raised nearly $200,000 that will be used for mammograms for the poor and uninsured.

A Montgomery couple started the Joy to Life Foundation to provide free mammograms for medically underserved women under the age of 50 in close to half of Alabama’s 67 counties. In its first year, the 5K run-walk through downtown Montgomery attracted about 300 racers.
