About the Founder and Organization:
When Alex, who was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her first birthday, was four, she told her parents she wanted to set up a front-yard lemonade stand. Her plan: to give the money to doctors to help them find a cure. Her first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand”, held with the help of her older brother Patrick, raised an astonishing $2,000 in one day. While bravely fighting her own cancer, Alex continued to set up lemonade stands every year. As news spread of the remarkable girl so dedicated to helping other sick children, people everywhere were inspired to start their own lemonade stands—donating the proceeds to her cause.
She passed away in 2004 but the Tradition is still going strong！
Alex Scott issued her lemonade stand challenge to the nation encouraging people everywhere to hold lemonade stands during one weekend in June to help fight childhood cancer – one cup at a time. Watch National Lemonade Days is our annual June tradition that commemorates the time of year when Alex held always held her stand and holds special significance this year as we honor 10 years since Alex issued her challenge.
