A color run has been set for a local child with bone marrow cancer.

The run will take place Saturday, June 8, 2019, from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the A.E. Butler Intermediate School campus in Quinlan, 410 Clardy Drive.

There will be a $30 registration fee, which can be done online by clicking here, or the day of the run.


Landrie “Teencie” Lay is a 4-year-old girl who was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome, also known as MDS, an aggressive bone marrow cancer. Earlier this year, she underwent a bone marrow transplant and has since been in and out of the hospital multiple times receiving photopheresis treatments to help counter graft-versus-host disease. GVHD is a condition wherein donated bone marrow or blood cells are seen by the body as foreign and attack the body.

The color run proceeds will go toward Landrie’s treatment. In addition to the color run, there will be a bone marrow swab event. The event is aimed to help find more potential donors for those in need of bone marrow transplants.
