Join Team Lemon in The Bank of America Chicago Marathon! 10/7/12
Be part of our team to fight childhood cancer,
one challenge at a time.
Team Lemon is Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation's national athletic program, inviting all athletes to make a difference in the lives of those affected by childhood cancer. If you have already registered for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, you are not required to have a fundraising minimum, and all of your fundraising directly benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
By joining Team Lemon, you are following in the footsteps of our founder, Alexandra “Alex” Scott. 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 bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $50 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 200 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
