Lexi’s LAMB Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was formed in 2007 in memory of Alexis Sparks. Our mission is to provide support for sick children and children with special needs through a partnership with parents, family, and medical staff. We work with local hospitals to meet these needs by providing items that help bring a sense of comfort and normalcy to the children. Items range from craft supplies and toys for the kids to meals for the parents while they are at the hospital with their child.
Proceeds from this event will support Lexi’s LAMB Foundation and help us continue to touch the lives of many more children and their families.

When you participate in an Out of the Darkness Community walk, you are joining thousands of Americans who are looking to save lives by preventing suicide. Proceeds from the walk go to assisting those who have lost a loved one to suicide, funding research/ educational programs for mental illness, and so much more. Miss Kansas will be in attendance to speak as well as sign autographs. We will be meeting at the Hyatt at 10 am for registration with the walk beginning at noon. After the walk there will be local food trucks with goodies available to purchase and a fantastic silent auction. Come on out and bring some friends to support a worthy cause!
