Since Lexi’s death in 2010, her family has organized an annual 5K run/1 mile walk called “Laps for Lexi“ – raising money for both pediatric cancer as well as a scholarship in Lexi’s name. Each year over 700 people attend this event. Be part of this important team in 2018 – the 9th Annual Laps for Lexi is on 9/29/18 (September is Pediatric Cancer Month).  Your support is helping us make a difference in the life of a child and providing hope to families.
