Alex’s Lemonade Days Returns

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer, invites volunteers across the country to take a stand against childhood cancer when Alex’s Lemonade Days returns, June 12-14.

ALSF’s National Lemonade Days began in 2004 when Alex Scott set her sights on raising $1 million to fight childhood cancer, including hers.  Alex invited volunteers to join her in hosting lemonade stands to help achieve her goal one dollar and one lemonade stand at a time. Through the help of these volunteers, Alex would reach her goal before losing her life to cancer in August of that year. Each June, the weekend before Father’s Day, supporters everywhere contribute to a cure.

The Foundation was built upon the principle that you are never too young to make a difference in the lives of others. For more information and to sign up to host a lemonade stand, visit: AlexsLemonade.org/LemonadeDays.
