ALEX'S LEMONADE STAND
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation has evolved into a national fundraising movement with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.
Love Your Melon is proud to partner with ALSF because we share a dedication to supporting top-notch pediatric cancer research. We are supporting ALSF with $150,000 given toward research programs in 2017.
$50,000 of this partnership will go directly to the Young Investigator Program to fund a promising young scientist who is working to make a difference by finding better cancer treatments.
$60,000 is dedicated to funding 12 POST grants, which means we are directly supporting 12 students as they experience hands-on pediatric oncology research in the summer of 2017. Stay tuned to learn more about these POST grant recipients!
We have designed an exclusive beanie highlighting our partnership. For every beanie sold, we will give $10 to Alex's Lemonade Stand.
