Laney's Fashionista 5kMen and Women, Boys and Girls… Come bring your funky fashionista flair!
Each year, we host a 5k event in West Reading in honor and memory of Laney and all of the Fighters and families battling pediatric cancer. The year’s course will take you around the scenic streets of West Reading. This course will take us past Laney’s wings mural and even around Delaney Circle.
We encourage people to dress up in bright, colorful outfits in memory of Delaney’s super fun and fashionable character. There will also be face painting, snacks, a DJ keeping the crowds energized, and other fun activities for the whole family at Laney’s Annual Fashionista 5K!
Money raised at this event will directly benefit local families with a child fighting pediatric cancer (many of them will be in attendance!), as well as our next grant for pediatric cancer research.
