Each year we host a 5k event in West Reading in honor and memory of not only Laney, but all of the Fighters and families battling pediatric cancer. The course is centered around the Reading Hospital and runs through parts of the Reading Museum and side-streets throughout West Reading.
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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If I am registering multiple different runners online, does payment have to be made separately?
A: Yes, each registration form done online needs the liability portion of the registration read and signed by each individual runner. Therefore, separate payments will need to be made for each runner if you choose to pay online.
Q: Are strollers permitted?
A: The course has some areas that become narrow, with gravel and other areas of loose terrain. Strollers are not recommended on this course but are not prohibited. If you use a stroller you will be responsible for any accommodations that need to be made on the course to safely navigate the stroller. Laney’s Legacy of Hope will not be held liable for any issues that arise if strollers are brought on the course.
Q: Can I walk?
A: YES! Walkers make up a large number of our participants, so you will be in good company.
Q: Is there a shorter course or kids course?
A: No. Unfortunately, due to the area we will be running in, we will not be doing any shorter courses.
Q: Can I just buy a race day shirt without registering?
A: Not at this time. You must register by April 4th to be guaranteed a race shirt. Following that they will be on sale race day but your size may not be available. So, register by the 4th of April to guarantee your shirt.
Q: Will the event be cancelled if it rains? And will our registration fees be refunded if we don’t attend due to rain?
A: No & No. This event will happen rain or shine. Of course we are always hoping for sun but in the event it rains we will make the best of it and continue to raise money for children battling cancer.
Q: Who is timing the race?
A: Pretzel City Sports
Q: Where will the times be posted?
A: On the Pretzel City Sports website following the race.
Q: What age group is required to register?
A: Any child that is physically walking/running during the 5K will be required to have a parent sign a waiver and register. All children under the age of 10 will get their very own bib, T-shirt (if registered by appropriate date), and swag bag.
