In 2000, a four-year-old cancer patient named Alexandra "Alex" Scott announced a seemingly simple idea - she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help "her doctors" find a cure for kids with cancer. Her idea grew from a local stand to a national movement embraced by children, schools, businesses, and organizations. All proceeds benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer, which has raised over $6 million for childhood cancer research. Getting involved with Alex's Lemonade Stand is easy and fun. Kids and families can host a stand or other event with friends, coworkers, club, and schools. The website provides a step-by-step guide to hosting a stand and includes print materials, sample press releases and letters, and other items to help promote the event. Families can also visit the website to find Lemonade Stand events in their area.
