Lexi's 5K

Oct 26, 2014 2pm

Wichita, KS
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.
