Run4Rex event to benefit young Fleming

Rex Fleming recently had the opportunity to meet Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton in Fort Worth.
Run4Rex, a 5K walk/run event to help pay for medical treatment of Rex Fleming, is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 19, at 9 a.m.
Rex, the 8-year-old son of Lance Fleming (’92), Abilene Christian University’s assistant director of athletics for media relations, is being treated for brain cancer that was diagnosed in December. Lance is sports editor of ACU Today magazine. Rex has been his dad’s almost constant companion at Wildcat games, as well as a familiar face to ACU fans.

Rex’s mom (and Lance’s wife) is Jill, and his sister is Ashley. Follow Rex’s story on his Caring Bridge page here.
