Lakeside 5K & Family Fun Day
Benefitting Ally’s Wish
Date: Saturday, October 29
Time: Fun Run: 7:30 am,
5K: 8 am
Where: Lakeside DFW
Hosts: Ally’s Wish, Lakeside DFW
The 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 kids’ run will begin at 7:30 am and the 5K will start at 8 am in the plaza (2300 Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound). 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 to the best group costume, best single costume, and best 18-and-under costume.
“We are proud to have Lakeside host this wonderful event for the fifth year,” said Jimmy Archie of Realty Capital Management, master developer of Lakeside DFW.
“The mission of Ally’s Wish inspires so many and we are honored to be associated with such an accomplished and respected nonprofit organization.”
“We have granted wishes to over 250 terminally ill mothers who are leaving behind precious young children,” said Missy Phipps, president and co-founder of the 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.
“We want these kids to have amazing memories and we want the moms to be able to experience one last amazing wish with them.”
