Laney's Fashionista 5k

Men and Women, Boys and Girls… Come bring your funky fashionista flare!

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, color outfits in memory of Delaney’s super fun and fashionable character. There is also face painting, snacks, and other fun activities for the whole family at Laney’s Annual 5k Fashionista.

Celebrity shout-out.

The late, Joan Rivers well wishes for Laney’s 2nd annual 5K 2014 ….
