Chance for Life was created in 2005 in honor of Kennedy Snyder, who was diagnosed with an aggressive spinal cord tumor at age two. What began as a small get-together is now an established non-profit that holds one of the DC area’s top charity events. Its 14th annual celebration is presented by The Boeing Company, hosted by MGM National Harbor, and powered by RedPeg. 100% of net proceeds go to fund vital pediatric cancer research at Children’s National Health System and through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
