ALSF Lemonade Days

Join the national movement to fight childhood cancer by hosting a lemonade stand during Alex's Lemonade Days! It's our annual weekend in which thousands of supporters from coast to coast host lemonade stands to fight childhood cancer. Lemonade Days is held each year during the second weekend of June - the time of year when Alex Scott always held her lemonade stand - to honor Alex and all of our childhood cancer heroes.

The evening celebrated the life and inspiration of founder Alexandra “Alex” Scott. In her remarks, Liz Scott, Alex’s mother and co-executive director of the Foundation, read a heartfelt letter she had written to her daughter reflecting on all that Alex helped make possible.


The Lemon Run 2015

More than 3,000 runners and walkers, many wearing yellow or gold for childhood cancer awareness, complete the 3.1 mile course. Among the participants are a number of Hero Families with a personal connection to childhood cancer, which adds to the meaning and inspiration of the day.



Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation Documentary

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 bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.
