Proceeds from Laps for Lexi will support the endowment of the Lexi Speight Chair in Pediatric Oncology at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's National Medical Center. The Chair, created in 8-year-old Lexi's memory, will fight to identify innovative therapies to treat, and ultimately cure, childhood cancer. Funds raised will also support the Lexi Speight Scholarship at Sandy Spring Friends School. The scholarship will make it possible for a student with financial needs to attend Lexi's beloved Lower School at Sandy Spring Friends School.
Laps for Lexi is in the process of becoming an official non-profit organization. We expect to move from provisional status to tax exempt (501(c)3) status this summer.
