The sixth annual event benefits Ally’s Wish, an award-winning organization based in Flower Mound that grants wishes to terminally ill mothers with young children (see the video below).

The race takes runners and walkers down to Sunset Point before returning to the community lawn for family fun, activities, music, and food. Prizes will be awarded at 9 am to the winners of the races and to the best group costume, best single costume, and the best 18-and-under costume.
Race-day packets for the Lakeside 5K may be picked up at Trailhead Running Supply (2600 Lakeside Parkway in Lakeside) on Friday, October 27, 4-7 pm or on race day starting at 6:30 am.
Inspired by the late Allyson Hendrickson (read more), Ally’s Wish provides a memory for the family that will last a lifetime. Wishes are granted in the form of services, gifts, transportation, lodging, or any other wish the mother may have, and a typical wish granted is approximately $5,000.
Since its inception, Ally’s Wish has granted more than 300 wishes to families across North Texas and the U.S. These wishes create not only memories in the moment, but also cherished memories for the children that last a lifetime.
“We are proud to have Lakeside host this wonderful event for the sixth year,” said Jimmy Archie of Realty Capital Management, master developer of Lakeside.
“The mission of Ally’s Wish inspires so many and we are honored to be associated with such an accomplished and respected nonprofit organization.”
“Ally’s Wish is here to try and give terminally ill mothers memories with their kids that don’t involve hospitals and medicine and doctors and sadness,” said Missy Phipps, president and co-founder of the organization.
