Fighting Childhood Cancer one cup at a time

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation evolved from a young cancer patient's front yard lemonade stand to a nationwide fundraising movement to find a cure for childhood cancer. Since Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004) set up her front-yard stand at the age of four, more than $25 million has been raised towards fulfilling her dream of finding a cure for all children with cancer.

Sabreena hosted her own lemonade stand last summer. We posted signs around the neighborhood and set up shop at the corner. It was successful in my opinion. She was able to raise over $65 with one day's notice. I'd like to change things up this year and ask a local business if we could set up outside of their place purely to get more traffic.

Think about hosting your own Alex's Lemonade Stand. What about joining ALS in thier 1st Annual Lemon Run. It's not really in my backyard but its defintely within a reasonable distance for us to attend.
