Each year on the last Saturday of September, which is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we come together
under the banner of Laps for Lexi to stand with families facing childhood cancer today, remember the young lives
like our 8-year old Lexi Speight who were taken too soon, and rededicate ourselves to combating this terrible
Laps for Lexi is a vibrant celebration - fun for the entire family. On Saturday, September 29th the beautiful
campus of Sandy Spring Friends School will be adorned with many of Lexi's favorite things - gorgeous purple balloons,
baskets overflowing with homemade cookies, the option to have your nails polished by Nail Girlz, chicken sandwiches
from Chick Fil A, a moonbounce, a bounty of delicious breads and baked goods available from Upper Crust Bakery,
and hundreds of people running or walking along 5K or 1-mile trails on campus. Without a doubt the spirits of
attendees are nourished by the grace, good will and positivity of the event all while raising money for an important
cause and in honor of a special girl!
We hope you will join us at the 9th Annual Laps for Lexi on Saturday, September 29th starting at 8am. Funds
raised will support the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's National Medical Center as well as
the Lexi Speight Scholarship fund at SSFS.
Please remember that we are collecting crayons and markers for the 4th Floor (Oncology Unit) Art Room...a haven
for patients and their siblings/friends. Your donation will help brighten the day of a child!
