Lei Lei's Legacy
Lei Lei's 5K and Memory Mile is an annual event that raises funds for the While We're Waiting ministry. It was established in memory of 5-year-old Leightyn Nan Holmes, the daughter of Landen and Missy Holmes. Leightyn was diagnosed with a brain tumor on August 6, 2010, and less than 24 hours later, she went to sing and dance with Jesus. Leightyn's Lifesong has had a profound effect on people's lives since her passing, and this event is a big part of her continuing legacy.
