On September 23,2017, The Leah Still Foundation will sponsor its 3 rd Annual Delaware Walks With Leah 5K Walk/Run to support Leah Still and other children diagnosed with pediatric cancer. The big day will be held at Christiana Mall, Newark, DE. VILLA and Christiana Mall are this year’s Title Sponsors. Special Guest Host, Karen Vaughn from Philadelphia’s #1 radio station WRNB 100.3 along with other special guests will be among the attendees. The walk/run event will be hosted by Leah’s family, who is the brainchild of this event. This year the walk will be special, the State of Delaware will read a proclamation to announce the Official Leah Still Day. The walk/run is expected to bring out over 200 people coming from the Tri-State area for its third year. With the support of local corporations, businesses, registered walkers and the community, DWWL will raise money and awareness for a worthy cause.
When Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma last summer, we were all devastated and felt helpless. We watched Channing stay by Leah’s side night after night, week after week, month after month, and all we could do was be there for her. We saw the pain in our sister’s face knowing that her daughter was in such a critical state, but as a family we were determined that we were going to stay right in the fight with our sister and niece.
Unless you’ve been in the battle you will never know the feelings that parents and other family members go through. So one night after one of our “sibling group phone calls” we decided we wanted to find a way to say thank you to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for the excellent care they provided our niece, and the extraordinary assistance they provided our sister.
Leah fought a long hard battle, but she finally BEAT cancer. Although she still has additional doctors appointments to go through the family is thankful of her state of remission. Leah is currently attending 2nd grade.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Families and individuals can still register for the event on the website.
