Alex’s Lemonade Stand

23 Jul

The search for a cure to end childhood cancer is being funded by everyday people.

One cup at a time, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is fighting childhood cancer with lemonade stands hosted by volunteers and businesses all over the country.

The children’s cancer research charity was founded by the late Alexandra Scott.

Participating Toys ‘R’ Us stores are running in-store and online fundraising through the end of the month.

Since 2005, Toys ‘R’ Us has raised more than $1.5 million for ALSF.

“Her (Alex’s) idea was when she got out of hospital to have a lemonade stand. I just think, to be part of that, I started to cry. It’s just so touching she wanted to give for other kids,” Jacquelyn D’ercole, a volunteer for ALSF, said.

Over the years, ALSF has raised over $55 million with help from donors and volunteers like you. And now you can host your own lemonade stand to help cure pediatric cancer just click here.
