Fighting Childhood Cancer One Step at a Time!
The Lemon Run Philadelphia 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Dash is held annually in November at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. The 5K, which raises funds and awareness for childhood cancer, features families, businesses and individuals who all want to support ALSF in their quest to find better treatments and cures for all kids with cancer.
In addition to the more than 2,000 runners and walkers who complete the 3.1 mile course, inspirational childhood cancer heroes and their families have the opportunity to participate in a mini version of the run/walk providing inspiration to all in attendance. Designed to be a fun family event, a kids’ dash precedes the actual race enabling even the youngest of supporters to show their support in the fight against childhood cancer.
Sponsor and team tents fill the lawn in front of Memorial Hall and Liz and Jay Scott, the parents of ALSF founder Alexandra “Alex” Scott, present awards to the top finishers in various age groups. Along with the winners of each age group, top fundraising teams are also honored.
There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available with levels beginning at just $250. All sponsorship levels include a number of entries in the Lemon Run, listing on the ALSF website and recognition on the sponsor board the day of the event.
