About This Event
Laps for Lexi is a fun-filled morning, held on the last Saturday of September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month). We celebrate what Lexi Speight loved most in life - her family, friends, Care Bears, the color purple and most especially, laughing!
There will be a 5K cross country fun run, 1-mile cross country walk and children's activities. Well-trained, child-friendly dogs on leashes are invited to join in the fun on the 1-mile walk.

About Laps for Lexi (organization)
Laps for Lexi is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Proceeds from its events support the endowment of the Lexi Speight Chair in Pediatric Oncology at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's National Medical Center. The Chair, created in 8-year-old Lexi's memory, will fight to identify innovative therapies to treat, and ultimately cure, childhood cancer. Funds raised also support the Lexi Speight Scholarship at Sandy Spring Friends School. The scholarship will make it possible for a student with financial needs to attend Lexi's beloved Lower School at Sandy Spring Friends School.
