26 Sun 2:00 PM Lexi's 5K
Place : Sedgwick County Park Wichita , KS
5k
  Lexi's LAMB Foundation was formed in memory of Alexis Sparks to help children in local hospitals. Lexi's brief time on earth touched the lives of so many and her courage to keep fighting no matter what inspired so many more. Each year the foundation touches the lives of thousands of local children and their families. Whether it is something small like a sippy cup to something larger like a video game system to help distract the child during their hospital stay, our goal is bring comfort to the children while they are sick. Please join Lexi's family and friends on October 26, 2014 as we celebrate her life and raise money for children in local hospitals.
