Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is all about children! It was started by a 4-year old Alexandra “Alex” Scott who had a dream to find a cure. Thousands of children around the world have joined Alex’s quest by holding lemonade stands. Alex’s very first stand was held in her front yard with the help of her parents and brothers.
During Lemonade Days, dedicated volunteers host thousands of Alex's Lemonade Stands across the country during the same June weekend that Alex first held her original stands. Each year, Lemonade Days raises over $1 million for childhood cancer research, with 2008 being the most successful yet, propelling ALSF to surpass the $20 million mark.
In 2009, we celebrate the 6th Annual Lemonade Days with over 10,000 volunteers at over 2,000 Alex’s Lemonade Stands coast to coast. It’s never too early to start planning - start the process now by setting a fundraising goal, creating your own fundraising webpage and registering your stand! We hope you will be a part of this inspiring event and make a difference for all children with cancer.
