A Local Pre-Schooler Needs Our Help!
Lexington’s cutie-pie, Spencer Smith, has been diagnosed with SanFilippo Syndrome, a progressive disease – likened to childhood Alzheimers, with devastating effects on the brain – that doesn’t have a cure…YET. Our LexFUN! and Lexington Newcomer Communities adore the Smith family, we’re lucky and proud to have them as members, and we want to do all that we can for little Spencer! We are participating in this race to raise money for the Cure SanFilippo Foundation, please join us.
