Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation holds special events throughout the year to boost our fundraising efforts. Our one-of-a-kind – and always fun - special events are “win-win” propositions. Whether we are dancing the night away at The Lemon Ball or running a 5K at the Lemon Run, adults, families and even our volunteers have a great time while raising money for a great cause.
